Larimer County Draft Horse Pull
Horse pulling is an event that started in the old west when a couple of farmers/ranchers started bragging about how good their horses were and who’s horses were the best. The discussion of “who is the best” evolved into a challenge between the teamsters as to who could pull the biggest load and the sport of horse pulling was born. Horse pulling today has many of those same “old west” attitudes and challenges. Teamsters from around the area gather with their horses with that same challenge – who can pull the most weight. Come join the fun in the Round-up Outdoor Arena 7pm-9pm Friday, July 31st.

*In case of inclement weather will take place inside Budweiser Events Center
