Friday night at the World Four-in-Hand Championship featured a three-hour spectacle in the arena, with vaulters, trick riders, Spanish horses being ridden, Friesians being driven, the World Championship dressage awards ceremony, foxhounds from a local hunt, Pony Club riders, birds of prey, and more, including a huge display of local heavy-horse breeds. Some of these wonderful draft horses were hitched to carriages and wagons; some demonstrated old and newer horse-drawn farming equipment; and some of the various breed champions — stallions, broodmares, and foals — were shown in hand. 

Here are a few video clips I shot, featuring the heavy horses:
