In the early 1900's when farmers farmed with horses, can't you just visualize a farmer telling his neighbor: "I bet my horse can pull more than yours can". Then to prove it, the neighbor would take him up on that bet and soon there would be some competition between several farmers.
Horsepulling has come quite far from the early 1900's. Although the Amish use horses to do their field work, those horses who labor on the farm for many hours a day usually don't end up in the Pulling Arena on the week-end. The few farmers that use their pulling stock to haul manure, mow hay or cut hay, do not do this on a consistent basis. So, the sport of Horsepulling is exactly that. It is a sport with a team of equine athletes. Come join us for an exciting evening of Horsepulling, food and fun! Produced by the Utah Horse Puller Association
