Awesome! Geeze, they're so graceful when they're running! It kinda looks like slow-motion!

That was neat!

I love how it looked like some of them were on a stroll, and others were practically practicing levitation xD and they were so CALM before and after the race!

My drafties wouldn't win a race in a million years.....lol.

I wonder what it takes to get a heavy horse like tthat to really GO@! it looked like the jockeys were really working hard.

Wow that was cool! Thanks for sharing! I love to watch draft horses run xD when my belgian runs around he looks like a foal with his little tail and ganly legs :3

The race reminds me a bit if the ban-ei races in japan, except those drafts pull weighted sleighs, not riders :P
