WEST MONROE, La. – Results from the 43rd annual Louisiana 4-H and FFA State Horse Show held July 10-14 have been released. Coordinated by the LSU AgCenter, the event was held at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center. “The horse program takes a lot of training and a lot of work,” LSU AgCenter Associate Vice Chancellor Dwight Landreneau told the participants. “We teach you leadership, citizenship and sportsmanship. I hope you will take what you learn here to better your community.” John Barnett, LSU AgCenter Northeast Region director, congratulated everyone, not just youth with ribbons. “Everyone is a winner who comes to these events,” he said.
