AUGUST 3 TO AUGUST 4, 2024

The Essa National Draft Horse Show (ENDHS) features the showcases of magnificent heavy horses, competitions and vendors. Join us at the Essa Agriplex on Saturday, August 3 and Sunday, August 4 to feel the thunder of our horses and witness the best of the best.

The ENDHS was initially established as a segment of a much larger draft show held at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE). It later found its new permanent home at the Essa Agriplex where it continues to act as an integral part of showcasing draft horse breeds.
