Another very enjoyable and successful show season for Carson Clydesdales are under our belt. This year we concentrated a little more on our breeding stock and halter horses, which proved very beneficial to our stock. Two offspring from our Herd Sire, "Alamar L.S. Lightning" did very well. Carson's Glamour Girl" was 1st 3YO at Carp, Essa, Navan, 2nd at Norfolk County and Rockton. She also won some mare hitch classes and was 2nd in a strong class at the RAWF 2017. Carson's Haillie's Highlight was 1st 2 YO at Carp & 2nd in the Carson's Ontario futurity Promotion Program. However, our biggest highest were our 2 up and coming stallions Jackton's Ronnie & Gor-Dey Seattle Thor who between them won either Grand Champion or Reserve Grand Champion at Essa, Navan, Carp, Rockton and Ronnie was Junior Champion Stallion at the 2017 RAWF. A big thank you must go out to our crew: James Kuepfer, James Fullerton, Ray Martin, Jim Dale & Heather Frank and anyone else who helped throughout the year. We are looking forward to a big show year in 2018 with the World Clydesdale Show in Madison, WI. Look forward to seeing you all there.
2017 Show Season for Halter & Hitch Horses.
We had another very busy show season showing both an 8 horse hitch and various halter horses. The highlight being an Imported Scottish Yearling Stud colt "Jackton's Ronnie" who we purchased at our Spring Sale and won his yearly stud class and Junior Champion at Essa, Carp, Navan, Rockton & RAWF 2017. An animal with a lot of future. He was also All Canadian Yearling Stud.

Ladies Cart & Team Classes
As everyone knows who hitches it takes a lot of work preparing meals, washing and cleaning show decorations and overall organization. Carson Clydesdales rely on a lot of good family members to help. As a reward we try and let everyone get to show in the ladies team and cart classes. A big thank you goes out to Heather & Brittany Frank and Sarah Kuepfer. Thank you for everything you do.
