This Belgian draft horse, Large Marge with her pony, Eragon, are examples of horses that will take the ring Saturday during Parkwood Equestrian Center's Breed Demonstration Day.

Students of the ongoing Parkwood Riding School will get a first-hand demonstration of different horse breeds and equine anatomy during two upcoming special classes this month, according to a news release.
