This weekend, Rural Heritage will feature a half-hour program on the annual Draft Horse Classic held at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. The segment on the Draft Horse Classic will air at 11 a.m. today and again on Saturday at noon on RFD TV.
The segment will feature the Draft Horse Classic, which has become the premier draft horse show in the Western United States. The footage covers the 2012 Classic, including various competitions, interviews with participants, Harvest Fair activities and lots of close-up shots of the stars of the show — the draft horses.
This year’s Draft Horse Classic is Sept. 19-22 at the tree-covered Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by calling the fairgrounds office at 530-273-6217 or visiting the fairgrounds’ website at www.NevadaCountyFair.com.
