Tour Scotland Clydesdale Horse

The Clydesdale Horse is noted for rugged grace and versatility; they are strong yet amiable animals exceeding six feet in height and over one ton in weight. A Clydesdale horse has a large head with somewhat arched profile, or Roman-nose, small ears, intelligent eyes and profuse forelock. The neck is generally straight, the chest deep, the shoulders with a lot of heavy bone. The back is rather short and a little curved, the withers high and the rump presenting a distinctively rounded silhouette. The legs should be long and strong with characteristically large hoof size, being about twice the width of a thoroughbred race horse's. The characteristic action of a Clydesdale is demonstrated at a trot. The Clydesdale is a breed of draft horse derived from the very hard-working farm horses of Clydesdale, Scotland.
