2018 Calgary Stampede Heavy Horse Pull

The powerful work horses of the Heavy Horse Pull return to the Agrium/Nutrien Western Event Centre showing off their muscle and might to Calgary Stampede crowds in 2018. With no auction this year, an exciting opportunity exists for individuals and corporations to join the Heavy Horse Pull Committee as valued Calgary Stampede Community Builders with special "boots in the barns" experiences for each round of competition.

From Friday, July 13 through Sunday, July 15 in the Nutrien Western Events Centre, teams in three different weight classes will pull more than five times their body weight a distance of 14 feet.
