Horse Show Huge Success

Horse riders on parade route
BATON ROUGE, LA - The Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center hosted the 42nd Annual Horse Show, April 20-22 at the Maurice A. Edmond Livestock Show Arena in Baker. Trail riders from as far as Texas, Mississippi, and North Louisiana traveled to Baton Rouge for the event.

This year, the horse parade left from the Livestock Show Arena in Baker to Leland College with different horse riding associations, from which, first and second place winners were selected by judges. More than 75 horses participated in the parade, which included riders of all ages.

The gates opened for the three-day event at noon on Friday, a fashion show followed at 6:30 pm, while the ultimate ranch rodeo took place at 7:00 pm.  Saturday morning, the events went into full force with the youth ultimate ranch rodeo, stick horse rodeo, and the climax of the show, the trail ride from the Edmond Livestock Arena at noon. After the conclusion of the gated horse show, Leon Chavis and the Zydeco Flames entertained the crowd, followed by J. Paul, Jr. and Zydeco Nubreeds at 9:00 pm. On Sunday, the show came to a close following the Cowboy Church service and Farewell breakfast.
