Come celebrate Canada’s National Horse! From dressage and driving to a six horse quadrille team, Canadian Horse owners from around the province have come together to showcase the amazing versatility of Canada’s best kept secret! Visit the barns to meet the horses and learn more about the National Horse of Canada and its status as a critically endangered breed.


DRAFT HORSE TEAM COMPETITION

Agrodome  |  August 24-27
Teams from BC and Washington will show their hitches of six and four horses. Once the primary means of completing farm and field tasks, these majestic giants are now here to entertain the crowds both in the arena and in their stalls in the barns. Always a crowd favorite, be sure to see the 6 horse hitch competitions on August 26 and 27!

MINIATURE CHUCK WAGON RACES
Agrodome  |  August 24-27
The Alberta Miniature Chuckwagon Racing Association has been attending events all over Alberta and BC for the last 19 years.  Miniature chuckwagons are one quarter the size of the professional wagons, weigh 350lbs and are mostly hand built.  The horses weigh between 250 and 275lbs and are less than 36 inches in height but don’t tell them they are little because they really believe they are race horses!  This is a high paced, entertaining show you don’t want to miss!

ANTIQUE TRACTOR PARADE
Agrodome  |  August 26
An exciting variety of privately owned antique tractors from all over the Lower Mainland will be on display and shown in the Agrodome for one day only!  Come learn the history and stories behind each tractor and talk to their current owners! You will be amazed by the varied paths these machines have taken since their manufacture date.

CARLAW CLYDESDALES
Agrodome and Livestock Barns  |  August 29 – Sept 4
Carlaw Cyldes have been attending the PNE for many decades as competitors and have also been giving draft team demonstrations during the Pacific Spirit Horse Show at the PNE for as long as we can remember.  They will be competing with the other draft teams from August 24 to August 27 and then performing Draft Team demonstrations daily from August 29 to September 4. Owned by the McGibbon family of Cranbrooke, BC, they are known to say that their favorite part of the Fair is visiting back in the livestock barns with the many guests that stop in to say hi year to year.

INDOOR EVENTING
Agrodome  |  August 30 – Sept 1
A rare chance to watch or compete in an eventing competition held entirely indoors! This 3 phase event is typically comprised of dressage, stadium jumping and an outdoor cross country course but we’ve decided to bring the cross country course inside! A unique course designed with a combination of cross country and stadium jumps and timed for a face paced, thrilling event. This competition gives eventing competitors a chance to show their stuff in an urban environment and is bound to please the crowds!

JUNIOR AMATEUR JUMPING
Agrodome  |   Sept 1 – 4
Coined as the best end of summer fun Jumper show for the competitors and as a crowd favorite show, this show offers 4 days packed with non-stop jumping. Classes range in height from 3’ to 3’6 as well as nightly fun classes such as Points Choice, Obstacles in Line and the ever entertaining Dog and Pony class which pairs a dog over an agility course against a horse over a jump course! This competition offers great prize money and prizes, an outstanding venue and of course, mini donuts!
