2012 Acadiana District Horse Show Results

The Acadiana District Horse Show was held July 5-7, 2012, at the Sugarena in New Iberia. There were many 4-Hers from seven surrounding parishes who participated in this event. The district and state horse shows are the culminating events for the 4-H horse program, but the horse shows are not the major objective of the program. They are simply 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 exhibitors is the real focus of the 4-H horse program. The measure of success in our program is not necessarily the color of ribbon obtained at our shows, yet the amount of knowledge and ability gained from participation. No single show can measure the increased knowledge or ability of an exhibitor. Those exhibitors that take full advantage of the educational opportunities and experiences available through the 4-H horse program are the true champions in the end, regardless of the color of ribbon obtained.
