BIG EX NEWS!
The Big Ex Announces a replacement pull for the International Horse Pull.
The South Shore Exhibition is very excited to announce the replacement for the recently cancelled International Horse Pull. The LaHave River Credit Union Maritime Horse Pull will take place on Thursday, July 25 in the same time slot allotted for the International Horse Pull. The International Horse Pull was cancelled by the Cumberland, Maine Fair early this spring due to lack of funding.
Upon hearing of the cancellation, LaHave River Credit Union jumped into action and became Double Platinum Sponsors of the Exhibition to assist in replacing the International Pull with a High Stakes Horse Pull for our Maritime Teamsters.
The LaHave River Credit Union Maritime Horse Pull will consist of the 8 top Maritime teams from the Tuesday night Qualifying Pull. The pull will be a 3 ft. hook-on, stay-on, pull with a total prize purse of $4,400!
Teams are expected from New Brunswick, PEI and throughout Nova Scotia. Come see horse pulling at its finest, as teams pull for one the largest single prize payouts ever in a horse pull competition at the Big Ex!
