Agribition 2012 Horse pull competition is in the history books.  If you missed the actual competitions you missed some really great pulls.  There were no runaway wins.  They were all close and all earned.  Here are the standings at the end of the day.  I will try and have the photos up no later than Monday.  They aren’t as good as other years, as due to security I wasn’t allowed in the arena.  Did my best.
