WV State Fair Draft Pull

If you've never been to one, I recommend it. These horses REALLY love their job.

I have a Canon Rebel XTi. However, keep in mind that its the lens that makes a real difference, not the camera body itself. If you don't want to spend thousands on a good telephoto lens, the Canon PowerShot SD's are very nice point and shoots. Teeny tiny too...I'm actually looking at buying one of those for the times when I don't want to lug around 50 pounds of gear. Takes decent movies also.

I've seen a draft horse pull quite a few times at the local horse show. They really do love what they do and they know EXACTLY how to get the job done!!! Lol They stand there all antsy waiting for that nose of the hook landing in the hole in the sled!!! Its amazing to watch the horses work as a team to pull because it doesn't really work out that well if they don't pull in rythem!!!

Great pictures, btw!!! I've notieced Belgians seem to be the popular breed for this sport.

Once again Sara, beautiful shots. I used to go to pony pulls years ago when a neighbor farmer kept a team and was very active in the sport. The scenery would have been very similar just smaller beasts He has since passed away and I think the pony pulling in the area died shortly after. Its a real shame. It really is something to see no matter what the size of the horse.
