Ottakee Posted August 25, 2012 Share Posted August 25, 2012 This was the highlight of our week at our local community fair. We were camping there for the week with our pony---a nice 13hh, 650 pound, 25 year old POA mare. After the speed classes today the girls got a chance to ride some drafts horses. Jake the gray Percheron stands 18hh or more and weighs in at over 1 ton. Bullet the Clydesdale stands about 17hh and weights at about 1700 pounds. That is a lot of horse for girls that weight about 100 pounds. The owners of these horses drive them but they also ride them and ran them speed today.........placing in many classes. There is nothing like watching a Clydesdale and Percheron barrel racing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
