Brookville, Ohio – The second annual Fallen Horsemen Memorial Horse Show will add 12 more names to its wall of honor during the event, which will be held August 31-September 2 at Circle G Arena, Lewisburg (Brookville area).

The open horse show was the idea of founder Tammy Denlinger-Lickliter, who created the event to honor Ohio and the surrounding area’s most influential horsemen and women. Lickliter teamed with the Miami Valley Horse Show Association to honor fallen horsemen and women who have made an impact on the horse industry.

“Anyone can honor a fallen horseman or woman who enabled life with horses through the Fallen Horseman show. It is our way of giving back to these wonderful people,” Lickliter said.

The event will begin with fun classes on Friday evening, starting at 7:00 p.m., and continue with 50 classes for exhibitors and horses on
