See Some Horses, Help Fire Department K-9 Search and Rescue Team
Do you like horses? You can see some...and help out the Shreveport Fire Department's K-9 Search and Rescue Team, too. The team, along with Towne South Animal Hospital, are sponsoring a benefit Equestrian Show this weekend. Some of the demonstrations are horse dressage and hunter jumping. Money collected will go toward buying specialized equipment for the K-9 team, which has responded to over 400 missions -- including Hurricane Katrina.
The event is free, but donations will be accepted. It runs Saturday and Sunday, from 8 a.m. til 5 p.m. each day, at Holly Hills Farms in Benton. Here are directions, if you need them:
Take Hwy. 3 north to Benton. At the traffic light (Exxon on the right), turn left across the railroad tracks, then follow the road about three miles to the farm on the right.
