Real Horse Power: Draft Driving Competition!

Went to a Draft driving competition tonight, the first one I have ever seen. Lots of Belgians and Percherons. Thought you guys would enjoy a few pics and videos.




Horse fell a lil bit




Videos: click on image to start video
The winning team I believe they pulled 6800 LB's!




Sorry about my laughter on this one I couldn't help myself lol. I'm glad he didn't get hurt or attached to big percherons.

Yeah it was pretty amazing how much weight these horses can pull. I'd never seen this before I enjoyed it.

Yeah I know though I'm pretty sure if I had big draft horses like that I'd probably end up getting drug with them lol
