Arena prep work prior to start of day 3 for the Sugar Bowl Extravaganza. It has been a great show so far, fun compradore for all with big classes. If this show was not on your calendar this year you may want to Add it for next year. Based on participant feedback it should be even better next year. Also thank you to the Louisiana PHBA for combining with us and increasing the total number of horses at our show.
