World Finals Six Horse Hitch



September 15-17, 2022

The most prestigious draft horse event on the Continent!

Thousands of spectators have cheered on the tremendous Draft Horse Hitches at venues such as Toronto’s Royal Winter Fair, the Washington International Horse Show, Kansas City’s American Royal, and the Eastern States Exposition in Massachusetts.

Six gleaming one-ton horses create a spectacle as they stomp into the arena as one, outfitted in patent leather and chrome harness pulling the historically restored freight wagons.

Crowds can literally feel the earth tremble as the massive hitches pass by!

Add on the Celebration of Champions Dinner!
