THE DRAFT HORSE BARN at the Shiawassee County Fair was, as always, a popular place for visitors throughout fair week. Traditionally, draft horses were used as working animals, primarily on farms. Today, draft horses and draft crossbreds are used in various areas including farming, draft horse shows, for recreation, and even riding and performing under a saddle in certain situations.

   During fair week, free surrey rides with draft horses are offered to transport visitors around the fairgrounds.
