The Essa National Draft Horse Show was originally conceived as a result of the cancellation of the Canadian National Exhibition show. A dedicated group of Draft Horse Enthusiasts felt the need to fill the void in the industry, and with the support of the Essa & District Agricultural Society, generous sponsors and devoted exhibitors, the show has established itself as one of the largest annual Draft Horse Shows in the province at its new home; the Essa Agriplex.
The 2020 ENDHS is set to feature the ever popular Classic 6 Horse Hitch classes each day, a full slate of Belgian, Percheron, Clydesdale/ Shire breeding line, hitch, and youth classes, as well as an extended vendor area. All information and important updates regarding the show, classes and registration will be posted on this website as they come up.
Community support and Sponsorship is integral in the continuance and growth of this important component of our Draft Horse Industry, and we are hoping you can be a part of our future!
