The second event is a horse pull competition. A friend of ours was with his father who came down from Prince George to compete in this. They start the horses of with 300 pounds of salt on the wagon and the horses have to pull until they get the stake out of the ground, oncce all the teams have a turn another 300 pounds are added. This continues until only one team is left.
Our friend Cory in the blue t-shirt with his dad on the first pull.
Getting dark and the salt is still being added.
I am happy to say that Cory's dad won the competion with his horses pulling a little over 4 1/2 tons. Cory the next day was on his way to Kelowna for the Canadian National Arm wresting competition. he has won this a few times, though we do not know how he made out on Sunday yet. After the work out he had Saturday night I am sure his muscles were all flexed though.
