The BSDHE promotes, demonstrates, educates, and entertains the general public about draft horses, mules and related equipment. Several different breeds of magnificent draft horses and mules are presented for your enjoyment. There will be several classes that will be presented to you during the three day show. However, this show is not just about the presentations, it is about team work. Many of the participants are family owned hitches that have shown for several generations. These families are up as early as 4:30 am getting their horses and mules ready for the show.
This exciting weekend boasts several different events including the men’s and women’s cart, unicorn, four horse hitch, six horse hitch, as well as youth classes. We also have a kid’s boot race where all the kids get to ride in a horse drawn wagon into the arena. We also have a kid’s stick horse race
The public is encouraged to visit the barn and view the prepping and grooming of these horses and mules. There is bathing, combing, braiding of the animals and the washing and polishing of the harnesses, wagon and equipment that is used. This lets the public see what devotion, hard work and love these families have for their animals.
