Draft Horse Town

Meet these gentle giants and discover how they played a significant role in shaping the history of the West.

Draft Horse Town is a slice of living history — paying homage to the mighty draft horse and the significant role they played in building Western Canada. Belgians, Clydesdales, Percherons, and Shires, guided by the skill of teamsters, helped build roads. They also hauled dirt and rock from building sites, pulled wagons, carriages and firefighting equipment, and even plowed the fields for planting crops. For daily demonstrations and entertainment visit Draft Horse Town in Country Trail - located between the Nutrien Western Event Centre and the Agriculture Barn.
