The Ontario Four Horse Hitch Series is becoming the most recognized draft horse event in Canadian history. Weighing in at one ton each, the gentle giants of the equine world are dressed in patent leather and chrome harness, accentuated with mane flowers, mane rolls, and tail bows. Skilled drivers navigate their powerful teams of Clydesdale, Shire, Percheron, and Belgian horses pulling traditional wagons around the ring.

The Series has been designed to create a rewarding experience for its members and is dedicated to promoting the sport of hitching. It is paving a way for passionate horsemen and horsewomen to come together for the draft horse industry’s celebration, preservation, and advancement.
