I have wanted a horse for a long time now and I decided awhile back that I wanted a Clydesdale and I am happy to have found out that they do make good riding horses. Hopefully I'll be able to get one someday and thank you for helping me get this information.

If you walk behind a Clydesdale you will see that its back legs are perfectly straight and not 'cow hocked'. They are said to be 'close behind' and they walk with one huge back hoof placed exactly in front of the other,just as if they were still walking along a single ploughed furrow.

We have a 6 month old Percheron mix filly. We want to train her to pull a cart. Her sire is part of a team that pulls a carriage at parades and rodeos.

They say he is a friesian but he stands 18,1 hands and he is only 5 years old he has to white socks (back). Is he a friesian or a Draft horse? Thank you. Margaret

    If he is 5 years old then he is probably as tall as he is going to get. Do you have papers or a reliable source on who his parents are? There's really no way to know unless you have his lineage background. It's quite possible he is just extra tall for a Friesian.

    Uh, baby horses are called foals...not ponies....

    If you don't know that a male=a stallion or gelding, and a female is a mare... And that babies are foals... You really shouldn't have a mating pair... Even though these guys are really sweet and wonderful... Stallions are...well, stallions...

    Maddy, why did your mom get you a 'stallion' amd a 'mare'? If you what to breed Shires or any horses, NEVER get a stallion (unless you are a proper horse breeding stud) If you are desperate to breed your own foal, get only a mare that is over 3 years old then, get a stallion at stud to breed your mare. Hope you like the foal(s) you bred. Also, I would recommend that you sell your stallion for your sake and his. By the way: baby horses are called Foals NOT ponies!

    You really don't have to be so RUDE to her, maybe she is only 10 and just learning about horses.

    I am 12 and I've been riding for 5 years. I know what a stallion, mare, colt,filly and gelding is. If you can buy 2 horses as easily as that, and breed them, you need to learn some stuff

I have just added a Arabian x Percheron, 19 yr, old, gelding. I have to say that he is the most handsome horse I have seen and most websites don't say that they are good at dressage, but my horse is. It may be the arabian side of him.
