21th Annual LaPorte County
Farm & Fancy Hitch Show + Halter Events
September 8, 9, & 10 2022 at the LaPorte County Fairgrounds
The largest single event organized by the LPCDHA is the annual draft horse show. Hitch teams from across the Midwest travel to the La Porte County Fairgrounds to compete in multiple events. In 2021, the show added haflinger and hitch pony teams. Farm team events, youth events, and halter shows for Belgians, Percherons, and other draft breeds are also held.
Last fall, 200+ horses from across the Midwest competed. The grandstands were full of families who share an interest and excitement for the breed – and there is no entry fee or parking fee for viewers. A partnership with the LPCDHA is an excellent value for your marketing dollar. You will receive visibility at one of the largest regional draft horse shows, and have a positive association with a family event.
