Big Changes For Louisiana Fall Festival



There are some big changes in store for the Louisiana Fall Festival this year. This three-day show will return to the John M. Parker Coliseum on the grounds of LSU in Baton Rouge, La. The 2009 dates are Nov. 6-8.

The wonderful traditions of this show include the best in Southern hospitality with great parties and the best in Cajun cooking. In addition to returning to LSU, a new show manager will join the hard working show committee as Peter T. Fenton of Pleasureville, Ky., will take over the top spot.

Fenton has hired Tammie Conatser of Nicholasville, Ky., to judge the Saddlebred and saddle seat equitation divisions. The United Mountain Horses will be an added breed to the 2009 show.

"This show provides a top venue to show in while providing all of the entertainment and night life of Baton Rouge. I think this will be a valuable stop for many trainers and exhibitors, whether they use it as a season wrap up show or simply one more prep for the American Royal," said Fenton. Fenton went on to say that points from this show will count towards the 2010 Louisville qualifications. 

Make plans to join them in Louisiana this November and continue to watch for additional information regarding the Fall Festival. For more information on this show, please call Peter Fenton at 859-321-9281.
