Northlands is pleased to announce the return of the audience favourite Heavy Horse Pull competition. Come out and watch as the extreme power and strength of the oldest farmhand out there is showcased. Teams of two horses will hook to a weight filled stone boat and pull it across the arena. The weights are increased at each round. Some of the top teams will pull up to three times their own weight.
Prior to the Heavy Horse Pull, potential team sponsors have the opportunity to bid on the teams. This year, Northlands—with the help of team sponsors—will be donating 10% of the auction proceeds to 4-H Foundation of Alberta. In addition, team sponsors will receive: Recognition on the big screen during the pulls and on farmfairinternational.com, a mention by the announcer during the pull, a photo of the team and an invitation to the exclusive sponsor reception during the pull.
So come on down and take an opportunity to promote your business in front of one of Canada’s largest agriculture audiences and help support future career leaders in agriculture! Don’t miss out on the excitement of the Heavy Horse Pull!
