The Big Thunder Draft Horse Show attracts elite hitches boasting national or world champion titles, with participants traveling from across the nation and Canada to participate. Spectators watched Clydesdale, Percheron and Belgian horses—each weighing a ton and adorned in patent leather and chrome harnesses—pull historically restored wagons. The horses displayed strength and skill in events such as the Single Cart Classes and the Six and Eight-Horse Hitches. Guests also enjoyed the new ladies’ four-horse Drive4theCure event, the kids stick horse race and getting up close and personal with the animals at the barn.
