Product Description

History

Clydesdales are more than just show horses or pullers of wagons; they are powerful draft horses with a proud history that led from farms in Scotland to their iconic status today. In Lanarkshire, Scotland, where the River Clyde flows, these horses were developed for heavy pulling jobs. Scottish farmers would hire their stallions, allowing others to perpetuate the breed and ensuring that the breed became standardized. The breed association was formed in 1877, and the horse today is one of the more popular in Scotland, New Zeeland, Australia, Canada, and the United States.

  • Recommended Age: 3
