According to the Guinness Record site, the 2013 edition lists Big Jake, a Belgian, as the tallest horse with a measurement of 82.75 inches.

Shire horses are the tallest breed on average, however the current record holder is a Belgian. You get your freaks in every group lol
No different than dogs. The Irish Wolf Hound is the tallest breed on average and yet the current record holder is a Great Dane.

We saw someone at the gas station today.. She had an f650 truck. We were asking if you have to have a CDL to drive it lol. She mentioned that it's pretty useless, because you can't haul a horse trailer with it or anything. Of course, she has Clydes and Belgins :P

Biggest horse I've seen was 19hh. A friend owned a 19.1 at her riding centre. I saw a Shire at 18.2 - he was only FOUR at the time, so hadn't quite stopped growing!!

I've seen a lot of BIG Belgians, but overall I'm not sure. My Perch Standardbred cross is 18.2. Not sure how the hell he got so big as a cross.


largest, tallest
