They should do away with 6 ft pulling all together, why would you want it at the round up?

I agree with Fedup, maybe your machine works better, would you be willing to let the association use it?

Don't have a machine. But if someone is going to supply one, they should make sure it works. Hasn't worked at the regular fair season in Keene, so why would you want it at the roundup and have the same problem.

Quite sad when people volunteer there time and equipment for the sport of Horse Pulling and have individuals out there like {fedup} flapping there jaws with no guts to use there real name. I would like to know what He or She does for the sport? Ben the machine ran perfectly, one hitch the truck did not get into gear all the way, I've seen this happen at the Great Lakes and heard it happened in Florida last winter. Nice to know there are some people out there that make no mistakes..

my point was for fedup , I was wondering what he thought was wrong with the truck. Do you not like the dyno-truck. they are the fairest for every one to pull on.The Smiths old Ford Dynometer runs good. Ben Reed

Ya know it just sounds like your a disgruntled horseman or horse viewer. You know that is tradition and you we everyone that draws horses at the fair or round-up are trying to keep the traditions thriving an alive and what is fair across the board. Some distances just are not for some horses and some horses just are not made to go on some distances. If you dont feel that you dont want to pull on 6ft then choose not to thats your choice. Why not keep a 6ft class at the round-up or is that a class you get beat in quite often.

I've looked back as far as you can on this website and i don't see any 6 ft. pulling at the roundup, so if your looking to keep tradition going, why start a 6ft. class.

Thats just it right there if it isn't internet accessable you dont think its worth looking into. An also that tells me that you haven't drawed horses for that long of a time. So here is what I will recommend to you is get Doug Rices Address and send off for some Blue Ribbon Books from previous Round-ups and you will see there were a fair shae of 6ft Clases in there every year.

I'm not going to get into a bitching contest with you, but get your facts straight. Don't need an address since we have our own blue ribbon books, been pulling horses for 35 years,been quite successful at it, been at the roundup the past 6 years, winning a championship, place 2nd in other years(not that it matters because so has many other people)and in the past 6 years there has never been a six foot pull at the roundup, and there isn't one this year!

I think they should go back to what worked so good in the 70's and 80's. The classes were basically the same every year. A maine style pull, 2 truck pulls ansd your boat pulls. It was a round-up that appeeled to everyone. The truck pulls for our friends in NY and beyond and a distance class for the Maine boys. They used to get a good bunch of horses from Maine and several from NY and further west each year. The Friday night class was awsome. I beleive it was a 3200 truck pull. Some years more then 40 teams in class. Having those boys from other areas in to compete made it much more interesting. to see how our boys stocked up against them. If people are against a truck pull just have the 27 ft pull on the sled. going back to our routes is the way to go

I also agree with jb. going back to what worked so well is the way to go. those were great roundups back then. much more interesting then what they are giving us now. is there anything more boring then the 3000,3100,3200,3400, free for all being all 12 foot classes? it is a CHAMPIONSHIP pull. lets make it attractive for everyone and get some diffrent horses in here for a change

does anyone else find it funny that one of the most populer classes in new england the 3300 is rarely offered at the roundup? How bout this for a schedule. goes back to the old roundup schedules. On friday a 3000 or 3100 12 foot followed by a 3300 27 foot pull. On saturday the Maine class followed by a freeforall 27 foot pull. On sunday a 3300 and freeforall 12 foot classes. I think that would make for a good weekend

You need to get your facts straight my friend dont know who you are or where your from but if your horses are drawing distance and they go sour on you going 27 and a half and 12ft who are you gonna sell your horses to another guy who pulls 12ft? No you would sell them to a guy who pulls 6ft. Because you got to go 6ft first before you go 12, 15, 20 or 27ft. An the first time i think the machine was introduced in New England was in North Hampton an that was 25 yrs ago or more in the 80's then before that is was in Greenfield then before that it was in keene. An before that they only had 1 distance draw and all the rest of the classes. So consider you being schooled in Horsepullin 101.


Last time i knew it was a 6ft discussion, never argued about machine pull being at a contest. When the hell did i say anything about going sour on distance or 12ft pulling? You need to go onto something else. Maybe buy a pair of Horses and pull them however you want to and than maybe you can figure out that 6ft pulling isn't the best pulling for your horses health and well being, quickest way to tear your horses legs up, but being such and expert you would know that.

Yeah 6ft is still topic of disscussion but your telling me that as far back as you can read on the internet whether or not there were 6ft classes in the roundup. An your tellin me to get my facts straight an I did just cause you get your feelins hurt on you dont know what your talkin about. Now I have had many teams of horses in my young life and yes I have had horses that i pulled 6ft and did quite well for years I pulled the same horses and they didnt develope any leg problems or health issues thats where your teamster comes in to pla thats knows his horses. And you think 27 and a half ft is essentail to a horses well being and health?? Well here let me ask you this do you think a pair of horses run out air faster on a 6ft draw or until they cant pull anymore on a 27 1/2 ??

Never said 27 1/2 is essential to a horses health, you might want to pay attention to what you read. You also might want to ask a few horsepullers from NE regarding 6ft pulling, more and more are opting to go to fairs that have 12ft instead of 6ft. And personally i have never had trouble with my horses having bad wind in 27 1/2, 12 or 6ft , distance pulling maybe, so i can't answer that one, but if you have a problem with wind in 27 1/2 or short pulling you might want to build their stamina a little or maybe check their collar and make sure your not choking them off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you go back to the early 1930 and 1940 the professors in the state of Iowa determined the safe distance for a horse to pull was 27' 6". They used this distance to determine the Horse Power of a horse, which was done with a dynamometer, Which the 1935 Ford Dyno owned by the Smith's was one of them trucks used. Ben Reed

I spent the weekend at the round-up. Considering the weather and the reduction in premiums I was pleasantly surprised by the turnout of horses. Most of the classes were very competitive and good pulls. But I was not happy about the lack of organization by the club in running the show. That isn't to say people weren't working hard because I saw several people working very hard. On Friday they were an hour late getting the first class started. Then over 2 hour break between classes so you don't get out of there until midnight. Then you rush up there the next day for an advertised 10am start only to find out they aren't going to start until 11am. I advertise that my business opens at 8am and if I didn't open until 9am how long do you think I'd be in business? I guess I shouldn't let it upset me since it seems to happen each year but I wonder why they can't seem to be more organized.
