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.

Clydesdale Mad - 2012-11-25
Who on earth said that Clydesdales were not used for ploughing? Clydesdales were bred in Scotland to work the land as well as for pulling. The true 'Scottish' breed also has 'COW HOCKS' as a standard so that their huge feet would fit into the furrows (and they still do)! Whoever wrote that Clydesdales weren't 'plough' horses is having a joke. What has America done with our Clydesdales. Not bred for ploughing and only used as 'flashy carriage horses'? There weren't any 'flashy carriages' in Scotland (we were too poor) and only 'The Laird' would have carriages when these laddies were bred. Scotland was predominently a FARMING and FISHING country back then. Where do you get your information from? My auld grandfather would turn in his grave if he heard about this.

    I understood the information a little bit differently, saying that  their legs were bred to be very sturdy... so they are excellently suited for pulling carriages on hard cobblestone roads. Also they were used throughout many countries for farm work, so it naturally seems that they would have been used for ploughing. However I can see how it is confusing and you've provided a very interesting tidbit as well, about their being bred with 'cow hocks' as a standard, so their large feet would fit into the furrows.

I have a Shire x Percheron and he turns three years old in October. What age do I back him and start riding him?

    He is old enough now.  Many start just a little younger (like 2 1/2 years) but 3 is old enough.  He is somewhat ground trained?  Saddle?  Harness, stall etc?  If not you would definitely start with that first.

    They are enormous but they are so gorgeous and yes they are friendly. Gentle giants - and in this case a real giant.
