Preserving the prestigious history of the Clydesdale
Strong and mighty, the Clydesdale is a draft horse that has been used for haulage, logging and agriculture since its earliest days in Scotland. The breed made its way over to Australia and New Zealand in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and it is credited as being the breed that built our country.
Sadly, since World War I, the breed has faced a sharp decline, now considered vulnerable to possible extinction.
Colonial Clydesdales & Carriages is working diligently to preserve the history and bloodlines of the Clydesdale. Emma and her partner, Peter, are committed to educating the public about Clydesdales and sharing both the skills and traditions associated with this mighty breed.
