Hillsboro, ND — Saddle up and head to Hillsboro this Saturday and come check out the annual Draft Horse Pull and Human Pull at Woodland Park as part of the annual Hillsboro Days. Paul Geray has been heading the Draft Horse Pull for nearly two decades and has been competing in the sport even longer. He talks about how he got his start.

Most of us have seen a tractor pull at some point in their life. Geray says for the Draft Horse Pulls, the concept is pretty similar.

And just like your tractor has good days and bad days, Geray says both the horses and the driver need to be tuned up and feeling good if they want a chance at winning.

And it’s not just the horses who get to have all the fun. Following the Draft Horse Pull is the return of the Human Pull, which Geray started a couple years ago as a way for people to feel firsthand what its like for the horses.

Both the Horse Pull and Human Pull are free spectator events, and the Human pull is free to participate as well. The horse pull gets underway at 1pm and the Human Pull begins at 4pm with a 3pm registration. For more information, or to register a team in advance, contact Paul at 701-430-0922.
