Searching for a horse? Considering a draught horse

So many horse races are out there, and looking for the right one for you can be a challenge. Find out more about drafters by reading this story from our friend in Practical Horseman magazine: They are the strong men of the horse kingdom and combine strength and endurance in one gigantic parcel.

However, there is much more that you need to draw a horse than you can see at first glance. Draft " (or "draught") means the capacity of an individual to tow heavier weights. Drawing ponies are available in different dimensions, according to the task for which they are used. However, it is the solid, difficult designs that have fascinated the fantasy for hundreds of years.

When you consider that an ordinary saddle horse is between 15 and 16 arms and the scale is about 1000 lbs, the differences are very astonishing! Don't be intimidated by their greatness; most designs are good-natured pets. "Tracy Walker, Horse Drawn Tour Manager from Kentucky Horse Park, who has been working with the big horse for over 20 years, said: "Most of our guests are really excited about them.

"I' m telling folks it's like stroking a really big stuffed bears.... most of these ponies are very soft. Some of our big draught horse will put their head directly on their lap and they will caress the horse and sense a relationship... it is really nice to see. "Large horses" of the design kind originated in Europe during the Ice Age and were known at the emperor was.

In the early Middle Ages (500-1000 A.D.), the godfather of contemporary designs - the so-called "Black Horse of Flanders" - was civilized because of his power and stamina, characteristics necessary to bring a knight dressed in armour into war. In peacetime, the same characteristics were essential, both in the city and in the countryside - whether hauling a plough, a cart, a coach or large trunks in the woods.

In fact, they assisted in settling the New World, dragging hostages across the border, cultivating their lands, cutting down forest, and fighting for ironfields. In the aftermath of the First World War - in which many designs featured - the numbers of heavier horses declined. Today, the designs are experiencing a strong return, thanks to a new interest in economically and ecologically working agricultural and timber facilities.

Designs have also been rediscovered in the leisure area. There is no more beautiful view than a full-ornate design crew at a big horse show where the "big thrusts" are welcome now. The state and district exhibitions have revived the design of tableware, conformational and train categories, with the various breeding federations organizing exhibitions and even international conferences.

There are plenty of hospitals for show art and riding art designs. Due to careful breed programmes the train horse's futures now seem to be secured. Also, the recent tendency towards "sport horses" promises good things for these giants, with draft crosses in particular requiring many riding events. Kentucky Horse Park has about 27 draught ponies.

They can be seen during the "Beginning" and "Exodus" presentation, meeting them in the Parade of Races and enjoying a walk through the gardens aboard a towed cart. There are all the important races, with a predominance of Percherons and some less known races like the Suffolk Punch and Mammoth Mule.

"We have all sorts of interesting personages here," said Tracy Walker. The word "draught horse" means one thing to many people: the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales. Today's Clydesdale is typical dark red, dark red, dark red or dark red with dark red feet and face. While his unmistakable looks and high step pedigree make him an excellent showpiece, Clydesdales and Clyde hybrids also distinguish themselves as hunter/jumper, show jumper and even trailer-horse.

"Walker noted that the Clydesdale tends to be a very kind race. However, these thick springs are really difficult to maintain. "The Kentucky Horse Garden has three Clydesdales called Thunder, White and Ted. "Walker conceded that tourists always come to the parks in search of the Clydesdales because they are the best known.

" Just like the Belgian, who surpasses all other draft races united in this land. Born in the small town of Belgium, he probably created the genetics for many other draft horses. Kentucky Horse Park's highest horse of attraction is a Belgian called Jerry, who is 18 years old.

Whilst the Belgian are usually the most difficult of the train races, the largest are generally the Irish. Yet, as Walker said: "In this modern world, many humans breed them for draught ponies - and they like the big, gangly ones because they have a little more flush.

" A further well-known design is the powerful Percheron, a largely grey or dark beast from the Le Perche region of France. It has earned its fame in the coachee business, where its generally bright colour has provided more exposure. Equipped with a comfortable, professional mindset, he was the first of the design races to come to America.

Charlie, an 18-year-old Percheron is one of the most famous designs of Kentucky Horse Park. "He is our top horse both in the show couplings and on the troll tours," Walker commented. Fefe, a 12-year-old Percheron dam born in the grounds and with a unique Sauerampfer colour, is another favourite.

"She is a very smart horse, and more the'old' Percheron; very obstinate, as they used to be, and a good draught horse," Walker commented. and was a flagship for the Rolex three-day race. "According to the race, the designs usually have slightly longer, more jerky steps," the experienced rider went on.

" England's most famous design race is the Shire. As a descendent of the Old English Black Horse he comes from the English Midlands and got his name from King Henry VIII. The Shire is a powerful but soft creature that can move more than five tonnes and is the biggest of the UK designs.

It has a light romaine nostril, and is generally brown, dark or grey, with a conspicuous burned face and conspicuous pinnate feet. An exceptional draught horse in his homeland, the shift horse was just as much in demand in the Americas, where it often drove beer wagons through the town' s roads. Though there is only one shift in the Horse Drawn Tour area - an 18-handed person called Camelot - Walker said he asserted himself in working with the Clydesdales.

A Shire called Ambassador, who is often shown in "Knight's Horse" clothes, is his opposite in the Parade of Races. Suffolk Punch, the Cream, the Irish Draught, the Heavy Draft, the Ardennes, the Ardennes... and the rest of the lineup goes on.

Although Suffolk Punch, England native, was rated "critically rare" by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, he has two parks in Ned and Doc, a young couple who are just getting on the right track as a group. Suffolk Punch, which is on avarage the smallest of the designs, is a real farmer race known for its excellent pull.

What about the mammoth mules, Bo and Bullet in the woods? They are also the result of at least one ALBC-approved breeding race. "One mammoth mule comes from a mammoth jack [a joumbo donkey] that has been raised with every draught horse breed," Walker commented. "The Kentucky Horse Course is attended by all kinds of travellers, many of whom use draught ponies.

"Walker said, "Some folks just want to go back to their root, and this is an occasion to get their hand on the line without having to own a group. "To learn a little about design horse story, come to the gardens this past season when the Knights of St Denys present a mediaeval replica.

We' ll do two shows for the Race Parliament and establish a camp so that attendees can go through and speak to the men, women and riders. "There' s also a trucking week-end in the early part of the year in the carriages. Walker says: "It's an informal week-end; they will have some hospitals and group meetings.

Lots of humans take their draught and draught horse with them to these coach-shows. "The four by four metre long tow bar of the parks with eight dark percherons is ideal for a genuine nerve-racking experience. "For all we know, it's the only thing in the world," Walker raved. "Either many folks don't have all races, or they don't like working with different races because their steps are so different.

"Having these steeds in front of you, sensing all that strength and yet knowing that they are so gentle...with that big friendly eye...it gives you a beautiful feeling," Walker said. As soon as you are familiar with draught horse, height stops being a problem. "Sharon Duke of Duke Shire Horse Farm in Marietta, Ohio said, "Some folks find them 'scary' because they're so big.

"They don't seem big to me, because they are all I have... and other little horse look small! "However, there are a few things that a "newbie" design must adapt to - like lifting the animals' huge legs (which the Tracy Walker at Kentucky Horse Park's Tracy Walker is like lifting a ball of bowling)!

Fortunately, most designs easily adjust to living outdoors and get by with the same ration as a big thoroughbred. Investment in a stable assembly pad; it's hard to savour these without one! Contact the responsible breeding federation first and inquire about locals. Further information sources: the Draft Horse Journal, Rural Heritage and Small Farmers Journal.
