Percheron Thunder: America's original horsepower returns to Midwest Horse Fair

April 11, 2013 | 0 comments

There was a time when America relied on real horsepower to move the nation.

Percheron Thunder is a living tribute to those days gone by. This magnificent group of black Percheron draft horses, sponsored by Priefert Ranch Equipment, will be making an unforgettable appearance at the 2013 Midwest Horse Fair®, one of the nation's top three-day horse events.

On April 19-21, Percheron Thunder driver Jason Goodman will be bringing his massive horses back to Madison. Each horse weighs an average of 2,200 pounds and stands an average of 18 hands, 2 inches tall.

Goodman has been working with draft horses most of his life. At the age of 10, he started driving his family's drafts to do chores around the farm. As a teen, he worked driving a team for an outfitter in Wyoming's Big Horn Mountains. At age 16, Goodman was the youngest driver to participate from start to finish in the Wyoming Centennial Wagon Train, driving a team 270 miles from Casper to Cody. He also worked at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, before accepting a position as one of the drivers for the Coors Belgian Hitch.

Goodman has driven the Percheron horse for audiences at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, the San Antonio Rodeo, the Midwest Horse Fair®, Denver National Western Stock Show & Rodeo, Bishop Mule Days, the Quarter Horse Congress, the International Rolex Competition, and many other major horse fairs, and parades, and PRCA rodeos all across the United States.

Although the Roman Riding performances came about while Goodman was "messing around" with the horses in the barn, he has now become a phenomenon in the equine entertainment industry. Goodman has been recognized as a top five Specialty Act by the PRCA three times and is the only driver of draft horses to ever perform at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. In addition to his performances throughout the weekend, Goodman will also present clinics throughout the weekend focusing on the mechanics of driving.

For additional information, visit www.MidwestHorseFair.com or contact the Midwest Horse Fair® by phone at 920-623-5515 or email press@midwesthorsefair.com.

The Midwest Horse Fair® is owned by the Wisconsin Horse Council, Inc. All proceeds from the Fair are returned to the WHC and are used to represent and foster a unified equine industry in Wisconsin, promote the equine through leadership, education, service and communication, and to take a proactive role in the future growth and development of the equine industry.
