2016 Rochester Fair
Rochester, New Hampshire
The Maine Pull
As I understand the event (correct me if I am in error):
A paired team of pulling horses, one teamster per team, a one hundred foot measured pulling length with side boundaries and turning areas at either end.
Five minutes time to pull twice the team’s weight as far as possible, turning 180 degrees after each successful 100 feet of pull.
Winner pulls furthest within the bounds.
