The Louisiana State Penitentiary will auction horses that have been bred and raised at the Angola prison for the first time in the prison's history.

The sale is set for Oct. 16 following a preview on Oct. 15.

The sale is part of the third weekend of the annual Angola Rodeo.

The prison combines quarter horses, thoroughbreds, Dutch Warmbloods and draft lines in an effort to produce performance or pleasure horses.

Many have been used in police mounted patrols.
