This event is in memory of John Marshall, a long time fair director and 4 H supporter. He loved the Pony Pulls!

Sponsored by Wayne Bank

These ponies look like innocent equines, and they are, until hitched to the pulling sled. Measuring 32” to 38” these muscular little pullers give it all they have for the win!  The only difference between them and the big pullers is size – definitely not heart!!
