Faulty equipment caused a runaway during the Michigan Great Lakes Int’l draft horse pull. The scared horses all had equipment attached to them with heightened their fear, and then the other horses in the ring were set off.
It was a bad situation, but the announcer, Carlene Davis, did an amazing job of keeping the crowd calm and under control. At the end of the video an ambulance was called, but there weren’t any serious injuries. I felt so bad for the horses, I was happy to see them stroking their horses faces and trying to keep them calm at the end of the video.
I know there is a lot of controversy surrounding the sport of draft horse pulling. Do you think it is cruel or do you think the horses are happy doing what they are bred to do?
