Horse-Drawn Cart Carries Loads of Fun

Posted: Updated:

Several historic barns and buildings have been salvaged at a unique spot in Bismarck.

Buckstop Junction is a project of the Missouri Valley Historical Society.

People of all ages can get an inside glimpse at many of the historic buildings and vehicles featured here.

Today is the Old Settlers' Day, where you can see what it was like living and working "back in the day".

One of the more popular activities for the kids is taking a ride on the horse-drawn cart.

Maverick is the name of this miniature horse.

His owner says the horses were originally bred to pull carts down in the coal mines.

"I think a lot of people don't always get to see the little horses in action and get to ride along with." says Kari Zimmerman.

"It's cooler because we're being led by an animal instead of being in a vehicle." says Mason Gurholt and Brier Gurholt.

"He's just a big pet, this is the most work he does all year." says Zimmerman.

She says Maverick can pull around four times his weight, which for him, would be around half a ton.
