July 26, 2021 | Red Deer, AB – On Saturday evening an unfortunate incident occurred during the final heat of the North American Pony Chuckwagon Championships. One of the equine athletes lost stride causing the wagon to halt allowing no time for reaction and affecting the driver behind as well.

An onsite veterinarian immediately cared for the horses on the track and determined the extent of the injuries. Unfortunately, due to the injuries sustained, one of the horses was euthanized. On close inspection of the animal and further review, it was determined a muscular-skeletal event occurred. All other animals were assessed post-race by the track veterinarian and deemed to be in good health. Neither driver was injured in the event.

Alberta Professional Chuckwagon & Chariot Association and Westerner Park are committed to the safety of the drivers and their animals, ensuring the utmost animal welfare standards are adhered to. Every possible precaution is taken to ensure the animal’s safety and wellbeing.
