Big Sky Draft Horse Expo

We went down to Deer Lodge MT last Sunday for the draft horse show at the Powell County Fairgrounds, which is a great local venus for people all over Montana to bring their teams and compete.

Deborah Derr from United in Light was there as always raising awareness and $$$ for her rescue in Livingston, here is a short video so now you know what she looks like!

Here is the Unicorn Hitch class

And here is the 6  horse hitch class

Its great to see these big rigs, but they aren’t really local, usually from  farms in Idaho and Washington which are big and wealthy farms and they have been breeding drafts for generations which is why they have such well matched teams.  You should see the trailers and rigs they turn up with too, on a par with the Bud Clydesdales….

Its a huge challenge for me to drive two horses at a time, so handling six must be exhausting!
