Haunting Halloween Horse Show in Haughton this Weekend
(Headless) Horsemen and women will all head to Haughton this weekend for happy and horrifying Halloween themed horse show!
By now, you know I'm the crazy horse lady on the radio and one my favorite events of the year is this weekend at Double Rainbow Farm in Haughton, LA. I just love dressing up, hence my penchant for Mardi Gras... Pictured above is my costume from a few years ago. Get it? Pony keg? Red Solo cup? Nevermind!
This Saturday, October 3, 2020, hunters and jumpers from around the region will come together for the most unique and spookiest NLEA (North Louisiana Equestrian Association) recognized show of the year.
What's different about this show? You'll see riders and their horses in costume! In the past, there have been some really inventive costumes! I've seen Flo from the Progressive Insurance ads, the Headless Horseman, plenty of princesses, the Headless Horseman himself, etc...
There will also be prize money in the $300 hunter and jumper classic finals and the mini medal and medal finals. Plus, riders can earn some coveted year end points for the PJH High Point Rider of the Year Award and for the annual NLEA awards banquet in January. This is also a perfect opportunity for jumpers to school before the upcoming Holly Hill Fall Horse Trials.
If you've got a child who's got the horse bug, this is also a great chance to get out and meet area horse people and see some gorgeous horses and ponies up close and personal. The show is open to the public and they generally offer concessions on site. The address for Double Rainbow is 1860 Adner Road, Haughton, LA. For questions, you can call (318) 949-9133.
