Majestic Draft Horse performances, breath-taking competitions, and seeing a Draft Horse “up close” are all part of the festivities at the 26th annual Draft Horse Classic and Harvest Fair, September 20 – 23, at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley.
The Draft Horse Classic has grown to become the premier Draft Horse show in the western United States, and features six majestic performances.
