What's Up in Lansing: Draft Horse Show & Pull


The Michigan Great Lakes International Draft Horse Show and Pull is one of a kind, especially because it is the largest annual draft horse and mule competition in North America. Stop by to see world-renowned “gentle giants” at this event, which will showcase four of the most pristine draft horse breeds including Belgians, Clydesdales, Percherons and Shires. The four-day event includes mule halter and hitch classes, pulling contests and obstacle courses. There will also be opportunities for newcomers to take classes as well.
