At present the draught horse plays an increasingly greater role in recreation but also in competitive horse driving.

What started as the PCC, Palm Challenge Cup in 1997, has continued to develop with the support of PALM Belgian Craft Brewers into the PHC, Power Horse Competition (www.powerhorsecompetition.nl), until now a mainly Dutch event. The use of draught horses in driving competitions has also developed in Belgium. Specific rules for driving using draught horses have recently been introduced in national horse driving competitions.

Competing at national level (during national driving competitions) makes the move to international level Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI - International Federation of Equestrian Sports) possible.
