In the evening we had to get our two black Clydesdale horses ready for a combined six horse hitch. We had been practicing with David Shaw’s middle pair all month. Our two of Ritchie and Advil were the lead pair and this was their first time in a hitch of 6. We came third and that means we were going to come back tomorrow for the finals.
This was also the first time that David Shaws pair of dark brown clydesdales had been hitched with six horses too. We had practiced with them a few times hitched as four but this was their first time in the swing.
The wheel pair of Duncan and Buzby where experienced and have been hitched with six before and we had Leonard and Donna Fraser light brown clydesdales.
