Essa National Draft Horse Show


Saturday August 3rd & Sunday August 4th, 2024
9am to 6pm
Admission: $10 per person, or $25 per carload.

Draft horses are known for their strength, endurance, and docile nature.

Historically, draft horses were used for manual labour that mostly involved the plowing of fields, and they were bred for their endurance and ability to work long hours on a farm.

Despite being powerful, most draft horses have a passive temperament and are fairly calm animals to be around.

The event will feature the 3rd annual Equine Mounted Games Canada competition
An indoor/outdoor vendor marketplace
With the new addition of the Barrie Kennel & Obedience Club competition

This August, see the brute strength and power of Draft horses in action! Bred to work long hours, plowing fields and pulling loads, they are a majestic and friendly reminder of past years. See for yourself at the Essa Agriplex on August 3rd & 4th. Also featuring the Equine Mounted Games Competition! Find out more at
