Melissa pulling Bob in the singles class at the Bridgewater Exhibition where they finished third out of thirty-one entries.

 

Melissa M. Merry from Maitland Bridge Nova Scotia started pulling horses nine years ago.  She began by competing in single horse competitions but at the urging of her husband Glenn she tried pulling his horses, a pair of dapple grays Tim (6) and Dixie (9) in a team competition and enjoyed it so much she later bought her own team.   Melissa competes in the 2800-3200 lb. class with her pair of Belgians Bob (8) and Jock (5). She pulls solely in Nova Scotia but annually attempts to become the first lady to qualify for the International pull in Cumberland Maine by finishing in the top three at the qualifier held at the Bridgewater Exhibition each year.  As well as pulling horses Melissa makes her living working with horses as a tour guide giving horse and buggy rides in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.  Her two favorite pulls to compete in are her local pull held in May where there's a little spousal competition as well as the qualifier in Bridgewater in July.  Melissa's two oldest children Rebecca (12) and Cameron (9) also compete in the annual kids pull at their local fair.  She considers her proudest accomplishment as the pay off for all the hard work she puts into working her horses.  "If I can walk away knowing my horses pulled good then that means more to me then winning a pull.  It's always nice to hear people say I did a good job or the horse pulled well".  Melissa was once told that horsepulling was no place for women.  "I would just like to say...I beg to differ and after hearing many compliments about how well I do...I feel right at home".
