Parish 4-H’ers heading for state horse show

By Paige Nash

Two Webster Parish 4-H members qualified for the State 4-H/FFA Horse Show coming up next month. The Northwest Louisiana 4-H District Horse Show was held this past Friday, June 16, at the North Louisiana Exhibition Center in Ruston.  

Minden High School Senior, Abby Caraway, took home championships in multiple categories including the Senior Hi-Point Performance, Senior Speed Event, Premier Exhibitor Reserve and Showmanship Reserve. 

Carter Reeves, a fifth grader at Central Elementary School, was named the Junior Speed Event Champion. This was her first year showing in 4-H.  

Although Caraway qualified for the state competition, she will be unable to attend due to already being committed to compete in the upcoming Little Britches Rodeo. Reeves will be traveling to participate in the State 4-H/FFA Horse show which is to be held in Gonzales this year on July 11 at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center.
