Belfast — The final Waldo County Riding & Driving Club horse show of the 2019 season was held on Sunday, Sept. 15. It was a perfect late-summer day with temperatures in the low-70s and abundant sunshine.

Judge for the day was Cohne Goodwin of Bowdoin. Sara Boss tended the gate for the day as Dale Hartley assisted the judge as ringmaster and Cheryl Anderson announced class winners.
