Breed Information

Heavy Horses.....Draught Horses.....Cart Horses

There are many breeds of heavy horses all over the world. Many people believe that the SHIRE is our only breed of heavy horse or cart horse. The SHIRE is just one of many breeds in the UK (and other parts of the world). We cannot hope to illustrate all the heavy horse breeds but the following selection should begin to cover the more favoured in this country. More breeds will be added shortly together with a section on Mules.
