Percheron Horse Schedule

YL Percheron team captures five first-place prizes!

The Young Living Percherons have started their 2020 show season off with a bang at the Big Thunder Draft Horse Show, winning first place in five different categories! Young Living took home the gold in the Eight-Horse Hitch, Six-Horse Hitch, Four-Horse Hitch, Unicorn, and Team categories, an incredible honor for our Percheron team and the Young Living family. The team was even named the High Point Hitch of the show, an award that recognizes farrier and shoeing skills.

The Percheron team was honored with a meeting with Sargent Jack Thurman, the last living survivor of the Battle of Iwo Jima during World War II. Sargent Thurman spoke to Tim Sparrow, our Percheron team manager and driver, and met our gentle giants himself. We are honored to have been recognized by such a great American hero.

YL Percheron horse team managers inducted to Hall of Fame

Young Living’s own Jason and Rose Goodman, managers of the Percheron horse team at Young Living’s Mona farm, have been inducted into the Percheron Horse Association of America’s Hall of Fame!

The Goodmans have worked with Belgian horses like the Percheron from the beginning, when Jason was working in the fields of a humble Wyoming farm with neither electricity nor running water. Rose inherited a tradition of Percheron breeding from her parents, who were famous for their work in the show horse community.

They later began working on show teams as part of corporate-sponsored teams and would sometimes travel over 300 days a year going to exhibitions, rodeos, parades, and other equestrian events! In 2005, the Guinness Book of World Records certified that the Goodmans’ horse Goliath was the tallest living horse in the entire world, measuring 6.4 feet high at the shoulders.
In 2010 Jason, always pushing the envelope with exhibition riding, did what no other person had ever done and Roman rode (standing astride two horses’ backs) eight giant Percherons, setting a new record.

The Goodmans are an incredible example of what passion, dedication, and hard work can accomplish. They embody the spirit of Young Living, and we are so proud to celebrate their induction to the Percheron Hall of Fame.

Come visit them at the Mona farm!

Follow Our Winning Team!

On the weekend of September 14 our Percheron ambassadors were crowned world champions! They won the 2019 North American Classic Series 6-Horse Hitch Championship—the draft-horse industry’s biggest event—in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Such an accomplishment, the second in a row for Young Living’s team, is possible only through perseverance, dedication to excellence, and passion. The same high standards that our founder Gary Young set for his Percherons mirror the industry-leading standards that drive Young Living and our products.

Our Percherons compete in many events at our Mona farm and around the United States. So far this year, they’ve competed in 10 events, taking first or second place in most of them, and exhibited at 17 more. Each competition garners them points, and those points are tabulated at the end of the season. Out of roughly 200 hitch teams, the top 12 were invited to Oklahoma City to compete in the North American 6-Horse Hitch Championship at the beginning of September. The best of those 12 competed for three nights, judged by three judges. Our team won that ultimate competition!

Our equine friends will be competing and exhibiting at Young Living’s Fall Festival and Draft Horse Show and PRCA Rodeo at the Young Living Lavender Farm and Distillery in Mona, Utah, USA, September 27-29. If you’re in town, please come watch, support them, and join us in cheering for the best! If you can’t make it, tune in to Utah’s Fox 13 on Friday, September 27, as local morning show host Big Budah visits the Young Living Lavender Farm to help us celebrate this extraordinary win!
Come see the world champions perform live at the Young Living Fall Festival September 27-29!
