Belgian WB/Belgian Draft?

I was just wondering, is there a difference between Belgian Warmbloods and Belgian Drafts? I've heard both, but a lot of people just say "belgian" so I'm not quite sure if they're the same or not... Thanks in advance :)

They are pretty different when you look at them. Belgian Warmbloods are sport horses used for dressage and jumping and Belgian Drafts are used for pulling.


Draft


Warmblood

Draft


Warmblood

But can you tell the difference without looking at a straight draft/wb? I'm asking because when I bought my mare 2 years ago, her previous owner told me she was a qh/tb/welsh pony/belgian, but I'm not sure which type of Belgian. I have her bloodlines from her sire's side back about 10 generations, but they were all Welsh ponies. Her dam was an Appendix/Belgian (I have a picture, as she's on a website with pics of her sire) but I'd like to know if she's technically WB or Draft.

When most people say Belgian they mean the draft.

Yep, what I have noticed is that when people are talking about the Belgian Draft horse, they shorten the name to Belgian and when they are talking about a warmblood of any type, they usually either use the full name or just call them a Warmblood.
