Haflinger and Hitch Pony Championship Series Hosted in Harrisburg

They may be small, but the ponies exhibited in the Haflinger and Hitch Pony Championship Series (HHPCS) displayed their strength and versatility in a pair of classes that concluded a national competition.

The 2017 Keystone International Livestock Exposition hosted this year’s series final Oct. 5-7. Finalists for the Six Horse Hitch and Ladies Cart classes accumulated points throughout the show season to qualify for the finals.

Finalists from each class competed in a series of three heats held each day during the Draft Horse Hitch Show at KILE. The classes were judged by a different judge each day and the results remained sealed until the champions were announced at the conclusion of the final heats.

Each hitch consisted of Haflingers or draft ponies. The Six Horse Hitch class was judged on how well hitches worked together and their uniformity. The Ladies Cart class was judged on the pony’s gaits and how well they responded to their lady driver, as well as overall presentation.

Champions from the classes:

Six Horse Hitch – Shanahan Haflingers of Mechanicsburg, Ohio.

Ladies Cart – Katye Day, driving for Crowl-Mathias Draft Ponies of Salem, Ohio.
