Livingston Parish 4-H club members did more than just “horse around” this summer.
These 4-Hers competed against other club members from Louisiana’s southeast region at the District Horse Show in Amite, Louisiana, in June. They also went against other 4-H and FFA club members from across Louisiana and the southern United States at the Louisiana State Horse Show in Gonzales, Louisiana, and the Southern Regional Horse Show in Perry, Georgia, respectively.

At the Perry horse show Aug. 1-4, Hudspeth and Amie Lobo both finished 10th in barrel racing and the horse public speaking contest, respectively. In the horse judging team category, Langlois, Sicard and Streat came together again for a 9th place finish. Joining Langlois, Sicard and Streat was Tristan Foret of Lafourche 4-H.
