    What is

    Never meant to offend anyone by using the term - "plodder". If fact we have several in our own barn that that term would apply to. In the miniature draft division today - we are trying to minnick the large drafts i.e. percherons, clydesdales - etc. These breeds show with more lift and action...

    What is

    We were fortunate to win at that Nationals this year with this new team. We have been driving and showing draft hitches for 20 years. There is alot of difference between a "Farm" draft and a "Show" draft. Farm drafts have a low head set and "plod" along. Miniature show drafts should mimmick...

    AMHR Draft Classes

    Jaime, don't mean to be argumentative but being on the Draft Horse Rule Committee, this class was brought up at the last minute before the Nationals. I voted against it for two reasons: 1) There is not a set standard for Judging, referring to Hitch Horse or Heavy Draft. When we asked - no...

    AMHR Draft Classes

    Here's a pic of the new team we took to AMHR Nationals this year. The horse on the left was just strated this Spring. The horse on the right was driving last year with another partner. This is our interpretation of a mini draft team. Even the large draft breeds have gone to more refinement...

    UK Driving Champions

    A few months ago we posted this picture and thought the caption should be: "I told you we didn't have our heads screwed on straight!!" Then this past week-end, while doing demos at the Horse Park in Lexington, it happened again and this time it happened to the horses, too! It must be catching!
