Don't worry these horses live to do this. The biggest problem is getting them to stand still long enough to get hooked to the sleigh. They want to go!!! They didn't even break a sweat!!!When they go to pull if the driver sees them struggle he stops. They even like to show off for the crowd,bettyp said:Thanks Mike for the pics. My love for horses bothers me some to see them have to pull that must weight. All looked like beautiful horses.
They use cement weights'Sugarmaker said:Nice shots during the pull Mike. Thanks for posting. Looks like attendance was down for this event? What do they fill the sled with for weight?
I agree that most of these horses love this. Most get all wound up for the pulling contest.
