An underappreciated attraction of past Wisconsin Farm Technology Days, the horse area at this year’s edition in Algoma is bringing a lot of buzz to Kewaunee County. Two of the country’s leading horsemen, Chris Cox and Dan James, are bringing their lifetime’s worth of experience as clinicians and demonstrators to Kewaunee County for a unique opportunity to show off their skills and help others with their horses. The prospect of Cox and James doing multiple shows a day at the three-day event and working one on one with other enthusiasts have generated a lot of buzz for their area according to Horse Committee Co-Chairperson Laura Siegmund.
Performers Mounted Justice and the Wisconsin Draft Horse Breeders Association round out the activities going on at the Farm Technology Days Horse Area. Demonstrations begin at 10 a.m. on July 11 and 9 a.m. on July 12 and 13.
