ABOUT THE EVENT
Horse racing is one of the oldest sports in the world that has not undergone any significant changes concerning the concept of the game. Harness racing is most common at county fairs —A form of horse racing designed for trotting horses to compete against each other while pulling a two-wheeled cart, called a sulky, and a driver. Racehorses need to maintain their speed over a set distance rather than sprinting their way through. Jockeys need to help their horse manage their speed and spread their energy. For this reason, racehorses and jockeys need to have high stamina and mutual respect for each other. The Schuyler County Fair continues to start the fair off with horseracing. Come out and watch the talent of local horses and horses traveling from a distance race to the finish line.
