Winter is a great time to plan and dream about your horse goals for next summer. Whether or not you are planning on adding to your herd of horses or a beginner or spectator, it is always fun to attend draft horses sales.
Some sales offer harness, carts and wagons along with the horse auction. Be sure to check with each sale ahead of time to find out what they will have available. Even if you don’t buy anything, you are sure to have a fun and exciting time and you may learn a few things as well.
Here’s a list of sales for 2013 that is courtesy of the Ohio Percheron Breeders Association. Be sure and let me know if any sales in the Midwest were overlooked. (2013 draft show dates are currently being compiled and will be available soon.)
