Highlights from Toronto Royal Horse Show, part two

Monday, 20 November 2023
CSI4*-W Toronto Royal Horse Show 2023

There is no place like home... For Mackenzie Clark, that's Toronto Royal Horse Show and through her magical lens we look back at the traditional event which is part of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. 

Taking place in the Coca-Cola Coliseum at the Exhibition Place in downtown Toronto, the event is one of the most popular on the North American circuit and attracts a huge crowd year after year – 2023 was no exception. 

Let's start part two of our photo special with the highly anticipated Six Horse Hitch Final all lined up for the final inspection.

Happy retirement Creedance!
