Britt Draft Horse Show was held on Labor Day weekend. 1982, at the Hancock County
Single Cart Male RiderFairgrounds just south of town. It was organized when a group of local draft horse enthusiasts felt there was a need for this type of performance in the area.

Each year the show features 18 of the finest draft horse hitches in the United States and Canada, representing the very best of the Belgian, Percheron, and Clydesdale performance horses. This unique event draws thousands of spectators, young and old alike, from all over the Midwest.

In today’s fast-paced world, many people do not have the ability or opportunity to relax and
enjoy a weekend that reminds them of days gone by, but that opportunity exists in Britt, Iowa, every Labor Day weekend. For many Iowans and other from a rural background, the draft horse is a symbol of their heritage. But, the era that the draft horse represents is one that has come and gone in less than a century. The Britt Draft Horse Show is a window to that heritage.

Fun For the whole Family!

The Annual Britt Draft Horse Show has appealed to both adults and children. Marvel in the glory as these gentle giants make their way through the gates.
A moment you will never forget!

Family fun with horses
