Clydes are beautiful but I don't have much experience with that breed. The only draft breeds I know much about are Percherons and Belgians. While Perches tend to be a bit flashier and more "beautiful", I think I prefer the Belgians just because of their temperament. They tend to be more steady and mellow, whereas Perches are often a bit more "up".

I really like Percherons and Haflingers and Suffolk Punches. But honestly.. I love them all! Clydesdales have a sweet face, Belgian Drafts have such a presence around them.. I could go on but I'll stop there.

Well, I HAVE to say Belgians, or Epona will feel betrayed:








Contrary to some people's belief: Drafts make superb pleasure riding horses




Pardon the orange vest....hunting season is upon us.












She is an all around fantastic and sweet natured and calm horse, and my son's best friend!!!

Secretly though, my favorite draft breeds are Shires and Clydes....because I am a feather addict, and they have some awesome feathers on them....though Epona's are nothing to turn your nose up at, either.
