NCWHMA was started in 1999 with only 6 members. What was once hard brutal labor for our grand parents and our parents are growing into events bringing our older generation back to their youth. Horse plowing is now one of the on going activities today teaching our youth many viral aspects of life. In our events of plow days, heritage days etc. you will see hook ups from the single horse / mule to teams of two, three, four, six, eight and even a team of twelve. ( that is a beautiful site to see )
The first North Carolina Horse Drawn Champsionship Contest was in 2009. The event was held in Linden , NC. This year 2017 was our ninth anual NC state champsionship Contest held September 16, 2017 @ S and S Ranch Farms in Seven Springs, NC also known as Spot Rouse Farms.
Many of these horse are Percheron drafts. They weight as much as a ton and stand shoulder high. Even the power of just a small mule / horse alone is astonishing.
You will see wooden handled walking plows , the sulky and many different riding plows. Not only will you see plows, but their is always antique farm equipement, tractors and cars for showing.
MANY COUNTRIES, & the AMISH still use these means for harvesting their crops.
We hope our youth and young at heart contiues to learn from our educational techniques. We encourage you to come give the past expirences a hand from learning from some of the best teamsters ( NCWHMA Members ). Your support contiunes to help our events move forward.
