Horses have been known to be some of the most powerful creatures for hundreds of years. They have helped raise civilizations and helped us travel the world. Today we still celebrate their beauty and strength, and reminisce about their power through some of the most popular equestrian pulling sports still practiced to this day!
We cannot get over this January weather! It's so warm and balmy, we hope that you will take advantage of the weather and come take a ride with us! We had so much fun researching and talking about some of the most unique equestrian sports, that we wanted to share some of the more common and popular sports that highlight their strength and beauty. These are horse pulling sports. We have so many wonderful and exciting examples to share with you, that we couldn't put it all in one blog. So for January, all of our blogs will be focusing on this incredible category of equestrian sport.
Due to their incredible strength and power, and the hundreds of years that horses have been a part of human life, there are many different horse pulling sports out there. This particular category of sport didn't have the best or safest beginnings. Thankfully, they have become much safer for both the horse and the rider. Each pulling sport ranges in skill and difficulty, along with different weight classes and rules for each to keep the horses safe. These sports are meant to show off the feats of strength displayed by these amazing animals, not to hurt or harm them in any way. Some are very ancient sports, while others are very new. Each has such a unique and incredible way of showing off the strength of these wonderful animals.
You can just feel the power these sports bring just by reading about them. The skill each driver needs to be successful in these sports is incredible. We are very happy to see that horse pulling sports have become safe and exciting events that are still loved today. Have you been inspired by these sports? Come visit us! You might not be pulling or racing, but you will be riding an incredibly powerful horse and have an amazing afternoon spent in the saddle!
