Six-Horse Hitch Classic Series World Finals

Thursday, September 15th - Saturday, September 17th

Event will be held at the MEC (Michiana Events Center) in Shipshewana, Indiana

The North American Six-Horse Hitch Classic Series has become the most prestigious draft horse event on the Continent.

Thousands of spectators have cheered on the tremendous Draft Horse Hitches at venues such as Toronto’s Royal Winter Fair, the Washington International Horse Show, Kansas City’s American Royal, and the Eastern States Exposition in Massachusetts.

Six gleaming one-ton horses create a spectacle as they stomp into the arena as one, outfitted in patent leather and chrome harness pulling the historically restored freight wagons.

Crowds can literally feel the earth tremble as the massive hitches pass by!

***No outside food, alcohol, or weapons permitted.***
