Never underestimate the power of a pony! In our pony pull events, these animals pull boats which are several times their size and really get to show off their true strength! Join the Big Butler Fair for our pony pulling festivities.
In our competition, teamsters will participate in various weight classes with a pair of ponies to pull their loads. Light, middle and heavy weight pairs of competing animals range from 300 – 1200 lbs and are able to pull upwards of five times their weight—more than the typical draft horse.
The Colt Jenny Memorial Pony Pull honors the tradition of the sport and our beloved friend, Colt William Jenny of New Sewickley Township, who passed in 2008. Jenny loved pony pulling, hunting, farming and was a member of the Big Knob 4-H Livestock Club.
