LPCDHA members strongly support the Wagonmasters 4H Club—the largest draft horse club in the United States. More than 100 head of horses are at the LP fair—the most of any county fair in Indiana. Adults compete in open show events. It is through our work with the 4H club that we share our love of the breed.
As part of the annual 4H fair, the club organizes an essay competition for the Wagonmaster club. In past years the club awarded a colt to the winner of the essay competition; as times changed and the prices of horses rose, the club now awards prize packages at each club age level. Kids submit essays which are reviewed by a committee of LPCDHA members. Winning essays receive items such as a tack box, grooming supplies, or embroidered chairs. Participation in this revised essay competition has climbed as not all kids have the means to own a horse.
