Equine Feats of Strength

Aug 18, 2006

When it is county fair season, what fair would be complete without those equine feats of strength?

Freelance producer Cheryl Senter sent us this audio postcard from the horse pull at the fair in Swanzey.

This was the first ever Draft Horse Farmer's Pull at the Cheshire Fair in Swanzey, NH. Up until now, there had only been a professional horse pulling circuit that made its way to the fair every year. Farmers Liz and Durwin Clark spearheaded the event.
Liz worked the loud speaker making the announcements while her husband, Durwin participated in the event, placing second with his Belgium draft horses.
