About Big Horse Works

BHW started as a one horse operation. It was the desire
of the owner Annette Nylander to share her wonderful
percheron draft mare Beauty with others. Annette is a full
time professor at Sierra College teaching computer
classes, but in her spare time spends countless hours
working with her horses; Beauty the draft and Bonita her
Arab mare.
Beauty came to Annette in late 2007 as a 6 year old
untrained rescue. With a lot of TLC and time she has
become both a pleasure to ride and drive. Now she is
ready to take you and yours in the wagon on a peaceful
picnic in the park or carry your important guests into that
special event.
To this point Annette and Beauty have participated in
several wagon train trips including Highway 50 Wagon
Train which travels from Zepher Cove to Placerville each
summer. They also show in several classes at the  Draft
Horse Classics in Grass Valley each year, have taken the
wagon for a spin during the Gold Rush Days event in Old
Sacramento and participated in several parades. They
hire out to the Secret Santa's Adventure in Penryn during
the holidays and also do a few private Christmas rides.
