Working Horses of Lancaster County
Every day in Lancaster County, thousands of Plain-sect farm families hitch up draft horses to work their fields, and carriage horses to take them from place to place. These animals are foundational to a faith community that bans automobiles and tractors in a desire to live simple, agrarian-based lives.
Stories and interviews accompany over 240 candid photos depicting the most common horses at work and play in Lancaster County— from foals frolicking at their mother’s side to six Belgians hitched abreast to harrow a field.
Come hear author Beth Oberholtzer and photographer John Herr discuss their new book Working Horses of Lancaster County. Signed copies will be available for purchase.
Please note: Registration for this event is open to non-members, so please register neighbors or friends whom you would like to bring as guests.
