A horse named Mannkato finished 50th in a world carriage-pulling competition.

The horse owned by Mankato native Summer Frost was the top American finisher in the Federation for Equestrian Sports’ World Driving Championships for singles in Austria.

Mannkato and driver Sterling Graburn, who train in Kentucky, were among three American duos invited to compete individually and as a team in the premier international contest. The American team finished 14th out of 18.
