Congrats to

Blue Ribbon Days Percherons

2014 & 2015

North American Six Horse Hitch Classic Series Winner

Blue Ribbon Days was successful in winning the North American Six Horse Hitch Classic Series for the second time in two years.  Twelve six horse hitches from all across the US and Canada qualified and competed for the coveted award held at the Oklahoma State Fair in September. 

Each of the top three hitches won during the three day, three judge event.   At the end of the third day, Blue Ribbon Days surfaced to win the award again in 2015. 

About 200 six horse hitches compete throughout the show season which runs from September 1st thru August 31 each year.  Points are accumulated and four Percherons, four Belgians and four Clydesdales/Shires come together to determine the Championship.  Besides ribbons, trophies and other awards, Blue Ribbon also picked up a check for $10,000. 

The black Percheron mares were the first mares to ever win the prestigious event in 2014.  A repeat Championship was beyond our wildest dreams said Albert Cleve who resides in Farmington, MO. 

The performances were video taped and have appeared on Gentle Giants which airs on RFD TV.  It should repeat sometime during the winter months.
