Yes, it’s real.
If you love the big boys, this is the job for you.
We never get tired of watching the big guys just horsing around!
It’s always a pleasure to watch the Budweiser Clydesdales — they could literally do exactly the same things as our own horses, but somehow the most mundane activities are transformed into magical moments of delightful artistry when it’s the big draft horses doing it.
Case in point — watching the traveling hitch kicking up its heels at Boone Hall Plantation in South Carolina. This scheduled rest stop took place almost a year ago in April of 2015 but it’s still fun to watch today:

No one seems to appreciate the value of turnout more than the staff of the Budweiser Clydesdales — the traveling hitch makes many stops for the health and safety of its team all around the country, and we’re happy to see the horses enjoying plenty of leisure time. We featured a similar video last year, which you can check out here.
While the 2016 Budweiser commercial didn’t have nearly enough Clydesdale, here’s a fun alternative.
Dreamwinds Equine Assisted Learning Centre of Bradford, Ontario produced its third Super Bowl “commercial” in 2016, starring Jimmy the Clydesdale. Says Dreamwinds: “While Dreamwinds’ Jimmy still awaits a call to appear in a real Budweiser Superbowl commercial, he finds Zoey a worthwhile distraction. With dreams of being together, their buddy Benson the donkey is on the job to be sure love finds a way. All you need is love.”
According to Dreamwinds, Jimmy is the official “spokeshorse” for the Stomp Out Cancer fundraising campaign.
Dreamwinds Equine Assisted Learning Centre offers leadership training and team building through work with horses. Learn more about Dreamwinds Equine Assisted Learning Centre by visiting the organization’s website or “liking” them on Facebook.
Go Jimmy, and go riding!

Less beer, more ponies!
There’s something exhilarating and yet soothing about watching this Clydesdale happily pulling a string of passengers in inner tubes through the snow.
Kenna Nye of Glenview Clydesdales in Michigan posted this video of her and some friends having fun with Gunner the Clydesdale, which has since gone viral… and for good reason! Where can I sign up for this awesome winter adventure?
Tubing day 3!

The Budweiser Clydesdales may not be making an appearance in this year’s Super Bowl commercial repertoire, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy these facts about them as we wax nostalgic, thinking about the commercials of yore. (more…)
If you ask me, the commercials have gone downhill since they started letting people be in them. What’s your take? (more…)
