The Calgary Stampede Heavy Horse Pull is the ultimate in strength competitions, and the powerful work horses of the Heavy Horse Pull return to the Nutrien Western Event Centre showing off their muscle and might over three days in three weight divisions. 

Watch some of the biggest and strongest horses in the world as they work together pulling more than five times their body weight a distance of 14 feet. With horses and teamsters from across North America, this event is full of drama, sweat and high performance equine athletes. In the three weight classes - light, middle and heavy weight - the winners will take home the highest cash payouts in the heavy horse pulling world.

Proudly presented by the Calgary Stampede Horse Show Committee.
