Approximately 50 northeast Louisiana 4-H members competed in halter, speed, western and non-riding events during the 2018 Northeast District Horse Show held at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe. District and state horse shows offer 4-H and FFA members a venue to showcase and sharpen the skills learned through participation in educational clinics, workshops, seminars and other project work. These skills are obtained as a result of hours of hard work, feeding, grooming and training their horses. The purpose of the 4-H Horse Program is to provide young people opportunities to participate in a series of activities designed to improve citizenship, sportsmanship, horsemanship, character, competitive spirit, discipline and responsibility. The hard work and dedication to excellence shown by 4-H and FFA exhibitors is the real focus of the 4-H Horse Program. Caldwell 4-H was represented by six members who competed in barrel racing, pole bending and stake race events. Graci Dunn placed first in Pole Bending 13 and Under age group, Hadley Smith placed second in the 14 and Over group. Graci Dunn placed first in Barrel Racing 13 and Under group and Hadley Smith placed fifth in the 14 and Over group. Graci Dunn placed fifth in Stake Race 13 and Under.
