Draft Horse Classic and Bounty of the County Success

The Gentle Giants took over the Nevada County Fairgrounds over the weekend as the 2014 Draft Horse Classic took place. Even with the smoke filled air, crowds turned out to watch the various performances, admire the horses up close, take part in the Harvest Fair and experience quality Nevada County products. One young family has been coming each year since mom came with a friend about 10 years ago and fell in love with the animals. The children are too young to sit through a show, so the family spends the afternoon wandering the fairgrounds. Dad has another reason for visiting the Classic.
