I'm guessing that's more a typographical trend to lose hyphens than
experience. I don't know about the event myself, but depending on
where the reader breaks the phrase will suggest the existence or
omission of a hyphen:
a) Southern National, Draft Horse, Pull
b) Southern National Draft, Horse Pull
c) Southern, National Draft Horse, Pull
Without any knowledge of the event, I'd read it like B.
