From stick horses to draft horses
PRINCETON — At the 158th Bureau County Fair, there will be horse shows on Saturday an Sunday.
On Sunday morning in McCutchan Arena, visitors can see two halter shows going on at once. One of the most popular events at the Bureau County Fair is the draft horse show. This event features Percheron, Belgian and Clydesdale draft horses. The open horse show will have their halter classes starting at 10 a.m. at one end of the arena. The draft horse halter classes will be shown at the other end of the arena at the same time. This will give guest a great opportunity to compare the 2000 lb. draft horses with the quarter horses and ponies.
Following the lunch break, the performance classes will begin. Be sure to stop by the arena and watch the draft horses as they are hitched to the large wagons in the exciting four- and six-horse hitch classes. There is even a Unicorn class, but it isn’t horned creatures that are being shown. The Unicorn class is a hitch of three horses with two hooked close to the wagon and one out in front in the lead. There is also a riding class for draft horses and they will also be shown singly hitched to carts.
