Draft Horse Pulling Harness for SaleDraught horse harness for sale
Iowa horse race: "Horse Pulling" has been around for a long while. No one knows where and when the first "competition" took place, but you can be sure that it was born a long while ago when a rider said that his horse could carry more power than his neighbour's horse. Horse pulling has made great progress since this first "unknown" horse pulling event.
Although there are several "Horse Pullers" and several "Horse Pulling" shows in Iowa, we do not have an Iowa Horse Pulling club. Condition: Preparing a horse for a pulling action is comparable to weightlifting exercise for a race. It is necessary to "condition" a draught horse to draw a heavier burden over a shorter range instead of pulling a light one over a longer span of ammunition, e.g. with a group.
When a horse is correctly prepared, pulling a heavier weight is not damaging to it. - It' what a draught horse should do. Crockery: Dishes/collar: An appropriate neck and belt is very important for any dragging creature that pulls a weight. "The puller must be sure that the necklace and harness will exactly match any horse taking part in the contest.
Failure to do so could result in the horse ending up with sores on its shoulder and impairing its ability to perform in its present and/or next show. Necklaces and harnesses are also available that have been specially made for the horse pulling game. Evenings in sports are also different from a stable working with a horse family.
A number of these pullers allow the weight to be drawn evenly when the teammaster knows that one of his team's horses is taking off the other. Aim is that the "team" works together, pulls fast and even etc., and not all of them are equal based on the power, practice and expertise of each horse.
Every year several Horse Pulling meetings take place in Iowa, which are mentioned on the page "Events". On the page "Links" there is also a hyperlink to a "Horse Pullers"-website. It is a very extensive website with information about all horse training federations in the USA, laws and guidelines, meetings, results, contacts, etc.
