Draft Horse Tack and Bits

Tack for Draft Horses. Large sized Tack for Draft Horses and Bits By Coronet.

Throughout the centuries there were not many draft type horses in America. The original draft horses, the Conestoga and Vermonter, were absorbed into the general horse population. As America become the breadbasket of the world the need for larger and faster horses became apparent, especially with the development of new farm equipment. In the late 1830's, larger breeds were imported from Europe. By 1900, there were over 27,000 purebred Belgians, Clydesdale's, Percheron's, Shires, and Suffolk Punches in the United States. The introduction of these purebred horses increased the average horse size from between 1200 and 1500 pounds to 1900. Today, the Belgian Draft horse outnumbers all other draft breeds. The American association for Belgian Horses was established in 1887 in Wabash, Indiana. Draft horses now average 1600 pounds or better and stand at least 16 hands tall. Most are Belgian or Percheron. These horses are still used today, especially by the Amish to farm large fields in the Eastern United states.
