Dougherty County- More than 165 horses of were entered in the Autumn Classic Horse Show.

The event is open to all breeds and also featured riders of all ages and skill levels.

"We start with what we call a lead line class which those are six years and older. Then we move on and have what we call walk trot events for ten and under, and then they move on and their riding disciplines are aged out. We even have some that are 50 and over," says show manager David Blackwell.

Proceeds from the Classic benefit the Albany Humane Society and the Albany Community Hospice. The Classic will continue Sunday morning at 8:30 with the jumping competitions.
