Class Descriptions
Single Cart: The single Cart had many uses. Farmers used it to take their produce to market; their wives used it as well to do their shopping or to go for an afternoon visit. It was also used for exercising stallions on breeding farms, so it is sometimes called a stud cart.

In judging the cart horse class (as well as all the harness classes), the judge takes into consideration both the conformation of the horse as well as its manner of going. A cart horse should have a good fast snappy trot and carry its head up, thus looking alert. When the judge calls for a walk, it should come down to a good flat-footed walk and stand quietly when at a stop.

2-Horse Draft Team - In judging the team classes, the judge is looking for a team that works well together. They should be closely matched as to their conformation and manner of going. In fact, they should come as close to working as one horse as is possible.

The Unicorn Hitch - When the team couldnt quite pull the load or would get stuck in the mud, an extra horse was added to help the team out, thus adding an extra bit of horse power. This was called a unicorn. The advantage of having the one horse in the lead is that all the power is being used to pull the wagon ahead, there being no side-wards pull.

This class is judged on conformation of the horses, manner of going and a small percentage for equipment. This class takes a skilled driver as the lead horse must stay ahead of the team. On the other hand, he must not have to pull the whole load either. The team must be well-matched in size and manner of going, and the lead horse, in particular, should be stylish and well-mannered.

4 and 6 Horse Hitch - Playing a very important part in the early days were beautiful four and six-horse hitches as they were being used for show work about the cities, especially on brewery wagon. They were also used for the hauling chores on dray wagons. Another team was added as more horse power was needed. The team hitched directly to the wagon is called the wheel or pole team. They are usually the largest since they do most of the pulling. The middle team is called the swing team and the team in front is called the lead team. (In the four-hitch the swing team is eliminated). The lead team usually consists of the smaller and faster horses as they must travel a greater distance when the hitch is making a turn. In judging the combined hitches, the manner of going is of prime importance. The harness and wagon and conformation of the horses is taken into consideration, but they are not as important as how well the horses work. All the horses should be pulling equally so that all of the traces are tight, thus the skill of the driver is very important.

Youth Competition - The art of showmanship is such that the earlier you start, the better you will become. Many of our Youth Groomer and Youth Showmanship competitors started before they were even 10 years old. It takes a lot of practice at home in grooming and handling the horses before these Youth competitors reach the level of competence you see in these classes.

In the Youth Groomer competition, the young people braid the mane, tie the tail, and decorate the horse. They then show the horse to the judge in the show ring in the Youth Showmanship competition.

Our youth today are the teamsters of the future. There are three classes at the Britt Draft Horse Show for them to display their driving ability: the Youth Cart Class with a single horse. the Youth Team Class with two horses, and the Amateur 4-Horse Class with four horses.
