The Percheron was a favorite for many agricultural workers. They originated in Le Perch, France, and were imported to the United States by 1839. In medieval times, the Percheron was used as a warhorse.

4.The Clydesdale is a draught horse breed from Scotland. The Clydesdale, or valley of the River Clyde, is where it all began, and much of it is in the county of Lanarkshire.
The breed’s roots may be traced back to the eighteenth century, when Flemish stallions were transported to Scotland and mated with local mares; Shire blood was introduced in the nineteenth century. The term “Clydesdale” was first used for the breed in 1826, and the horses spread over most of Scotland and into northern England. Numerous Clydesdales were transported to many foreign countries after the breed association was formed in 1877, particularly to Australia and New Zealand.
5. The Shire is a British draught horse breed. It’s usually black, grey, or bay in color. Shires have held international records for the most significant horse and the tallest horse, respectively. The Shire had tremendous weight-pulling capacity; it was employed for agricultural paintings, pulling two barges at once, while the canal equipment became a key method for product distribution and as a cart-horse for avenue transport.
One historical use is for pulling brewer’s drays for beer transport, which a few are still employed for; others are used for forestry, riding, and commercial marketing.
