#DRAFT HORSES

World Equestrian Brands Helmet Cam: Percheron XC

Percherons wouldn’t normally be good event horses … but this isn’t a normal Percheron! Ride along on the Plantation Fields Novice cross-country course aboard “Klein.”

Draft horses are most commonly seen pulling carriages and wagons; they can make great riding horses but very few have the athletic build and drive to be an event horse. “Klein” is one of these rare individuals, a more refined Percheron than other members of her breed better suited to more typical draft horse uses.

Climb aboard Klein and go for a spin around Plantation Field’s Novice cross-country course!

From the rider’s perspective, you might not guess you’re riding a Percheron. We’re loving “The Flying Percheron” blog, which chronicles the long and patient process of training a draft horse eventer — check it out here.

Go Percherons! Go riding!
