Florida State Fair Draft Show!

So I went to the FL State Fair yesterday and they were having a draft horse show! My camera was running out of battery quickly but I caught the first half of it.

The first part was a competition between a belgian and a percheron 6horse hitch. The Belgians won and WOW were they amazing!

Next they had the Gyspy Vanners. They werent in competition, it was more to inform people about the breed.

Theres a video of the new breed these people tried to make up, of a mini clydesdale.

OKAY! So, I finally got the rest of the pictures loaded up =D

Percheron doing a single pull.

Belgian and percheron "unicorn hitch"

Not sure why these guys were considered drafts but they were!

Welsh draft 4 horse hitch. They came in 3rd in the competition

I honestly don't remember what these guys were. They came in second though! lol

These guys were the "mini clydesdales". They came in first. The front 2 pullers were almost completely in sync through the whole competition! Very nice movers =D

Video of the mini clydes doing their victory lap.

My personal favorite was this cutie! Unfortunately, I had to leave right before she entered the ring. =(

Great pics! Thanks for sharing them. My favorite thing at the expo/horse fair here is watching the hitch competitions...and looking at the rigs they need to haul all of those big boys & the gear that goes with!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
