Big Thunder Draft Horse Show
The show will feature fourteen of the finest hitches in the United States and Canada. National and Local competitors, bring with them a variety of draft horses including Clydesdales, Belgians, Shires and Percherons, to compete in front of a world class judge and accrue points in the North American Six Horse Hitch Classic Series.
This is a show for the young and old alike. These “gentle giants” were a staple in the early days for farming our soils and transporting settlers across the West. To hear the powerful sound of their hooves stomping through the arena is reason enough to experience this educational and entertaining show for the whole family.
All guests are given the opportunity to walk through the barns and see these massive, beautiful horses 1 hour before show time. “There isn’t an experience like this anywhere, says Abby Powell Event Director for the show. Patrons have an opportunity to watch as the horses are harnessed and prepped for the show. The amount of detail is incredible to see.”
