      Horse games at Gogebic County Fair

      Horses strutted their stuff Sunday at the 91st annual Gogebic County Fair.

      The action game show is a day full of horse games. There are seven different games, such as the 'Flag in Pail' game. The object is to get the flag in the pail without dropping it as quickly as possible. This year there are more than 50 kids participating in the games.

      "They're cheering for each other and it's fun," said Cathy Koval, horse race council member. "They're laughing and you can go fast. You can try something you normally wouldn't try because you're comfortable with your peers, so I think the feedback is we need more games, we need more fun, and that's what we're trying to promote."

      T hese games are a way to challenge a rider's technique and control of their horse.
