Fleeceworks Morning Feed: Appreciating the Heavy Horse
Celebrating Britain’s draught horses.
The Heavy Draught Horses of Great Britain have a rich history, and the FEI did an awesome documentary on these horses.
If you are a draft enthusiast, you won’t want to miss this documentary from the FEI on the draught horses who reside in Great Britain and how many are trying to keep their heritage and history alive.
It’s really interesting to hear people share their experiences with various heavy horses throughout their life. Indeed, these horses are about as versatile as they come — driving, farming, showing … there are so many uses for these bigger horses.
Check out the documentary here:
Obviously the popularity of machinery for farming has taken a toll on the heavy breeds found in the UK as their most common job opportunities have dwindled.
It’s comforting to know, though, that people still work tirelessly to promote these horses who have given so much over time to their human peers.
Go Heavy Horses and Go Riding!
