Draft Horse Pulling
“Horse Pulling” competition has been around a long time. Nobody knows where or when the first “contest” was held but you can be sure that it originated long ago with one horseman stating that his horse can pull more weight than his neighbor’s horse. In order to prove it, there needed to be an organized event and of course the word spread about it and other people would come observe and congratulate the winner.
Since that first “unknown” horse pulling contest, the sport of horse pulling has come a long way. Of course, now there are rules, regulations, associations, national rankings, etc.
Many of these teams will be competing at the Cedar Livestock & Heritage Festival. Some of the teams that will be there are the current National Western Stock Show Heavy Weight Champion, past champions, and teams that have competed at every level. You can also see some of these teams in parades, pulling sleighs at ski hills carrying people to dinner, logging, and farming. These horses aren’t just for summer fun, they can also be seen pulling sleighs full of Christmas carolers out on a brisk, beautiful night.
These horses range in size from 1,700 to 2,500 pounds per horse. They are beautiful, gentle giants. For a fun family memory, please come see these majestic horses having their kind of fun.
Antique Tractor Pulling Glossary
Antique Tractor: Any tractor manufactured in 1938 or earlier
Classic Tractor: Any tractor manufactured between 1939 and 1960. (Note: CCAMA Pulls Antique and Classic tractors together in the appropriate weight classes.)
Class: Every tractor is assigned to a specific class according to the combined weight of the tractor and driver. Some tractors may pull more that one class by adding additional weight to the tractor.
Sled or Transfer Sled: A device that is attached to the hitch of the tractor that progressively transfers more weight on to the tractor as it advances down the track until the tractor either runs out of power or loses traction. The sled has many different adjustments so that it can be used on tractors in several different weight classes.
Hook: The act of “hooking” tractor with a heavy chain to the sled and attempting a pull.
Pull: Moving or attempting to move the sled down the track.
Measurement: Distance that a tractor pulls the sled down the track in feet or inches
Full Pull: Pulling the sled the full length of the track usually 200 feet to 250 feet.
Pull Off: If more than one tractor in a class makes a full pull or otherwise pull identical distances, the settings on the sled will be changes, making it more difficult to pull, and the tractors will pull again to break the tie.
Tip Bars or Wheelie Bars: Safety devices attached to the rear of some pulling tractors that limits how high the front of the tractor can come off the ground.
Flagman: This official by waving a flag gives permission to the puller to make an attempt at pulling the sled. When the sled is no longer making forward progress, the safety chain comes off the ground, or for the safety or equipment concerns, the flagman again waves the flag, and the puller must immediately shut down the tractor.
Safety Chain: The chain attached by a magnet to the front of the pulling tractors, and once the front of the tractor raises enough off the ground for the chain to be in the air, the flagman will wave the flag requiring the puller to discontinue their attempt.
