Horse Pulling Contest
In the early 1900's farmers farmed with horses - you can just visualize a farmer telling his neighbor, "I bet my horse can pull more than yours" Then to prove it the neighbor would take him up on that bet and soon there would be some horse pulling competition between several farmers
Horse pulling has come quite far since the early 1900's. Although the Amish use horses to do their field work, those horses who labor on the farm for many hours a day usually don't end up in the Pulling Arena on the week-end The few farmers that use their pulling stock to haul manure, mow hay or cut hay do not do this on a consistent basis
