GRASS VALLEY, Calif. — The Nevada County Fairgrounds had something to celebrate Sept. 22-25, as it hosted the 25th Annual Draft Horse Classic along with their Harvest Fair and first Annual Classic Rib Cook-Off. In six performances throughout the four-day event, draft horse exhibitors from California, Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, and Iowa competed for more than $35,000 in premium awards.

Ciera Barry, 17, of Millvale was awarded “Youth of the Show,” the high point for youth competitors, after placing first in Gambler’s Choice and Junior Showmanship, and second in Junior Team Driving and Junior Cart. For the fifth consecutive year, Danielle Simpson, of Simpson Percherons from Rio Vista, was recognized as the outstanding lady driver, accumulating high points to win the Susan Parnell High Point Perpetual Award.

Laurevale Clydesdales at Sargent Equestrian Center took home top honors. Their stallion, Jack of Hearts (Solomon’s Beaureguard X Handsome Height’s Hazel), owned by Jeanne Williams of Lodi and shown by Vernon Helmuth, earned the titles of Overall Supreme Champion horse and Grand Champion Stallion.
