 Fall Cutting Horse Competition

Saturday, September 9, 2017 at 11:00 a.m.
Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 9:00 a.m.

A cutting horse is an athletic and willing animal possessing an innate "cow sense" and ability to respond quickly and turn sharply, trained to keep a cow from returning to the herd. In this event, the horse and rider select and separate a cow out of a small group. When the cow tries to return to its herd, the rider loosens the reins and leaves it entirely to the horse to keep the cow separated, a job the best horses do with relish, savvy, and style.

Tractor Pull and Garden Tractor Pull

Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 12:00 p.m.

This is definitely an event where the local farmers cut loose and kick up the dust! This motorsport competition requires tractors to pull a heavy sled with the winner being the tractor that pulls the sled the farthest. Tractors in their respective classes pull a set weight in the sled. As the sled is pulled down the track, the weight is transferred from over the rear axles and towards the front of the sled. As the weight shifts, the resistance builds. The further the tractor pulls the sled, the more difficult it gets. The kids have their version using the same principle but with a garden tractor and a much smaller sled.

Registration for the Tractor Pull and Garden Tractor Pull starts at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday at the weigh-in location on the north side of the fairgrounds.  The pulls will start at 12:00 p.m.
