About Brabant HorsesAbout Brabant Horses



Brabant (also known as Belgian draft) horses are from Belgium, and can be found all over Germany as well as the Netherlands, France, and more specifically set inside Brussels. They are used for harness work and for shows or competitions alike. Their unique appearances make it easier for them to do very well inside the competitive circuit and they have a very friendly personality to boot.  

Brabant horses have quite a history coming from significant dignitaries using them on a regular basis for being bred for use in shows. It has been noted that the Brabant horses were used to carry those involved in the Norman Conquest of Britain during 1066. They are a very large horse variation that was reliable and dependably used on missions and in the military as well. The Belgium people adored these animals and still to this day hold them to a very high standard and were given a studbook in the middle of the eighteenth century. In the United States, this was opened sometime in the late 1800’s. They were almost extinct in the nineteen hundreds as a result of the common folk utilizing cars and other forms of public transport versus the traditional means. However, they survived thanks to the many locals who truly valued their presence.    

The Brabant horses can be considered calm creatures. Most are sweet, loving, docile, and biddable. Those that own them put them to use on farmlands and such and all have noted that they are enjoyable animals to have around. Some horses are thought of as not being very trainable, but this style can certainly be trained with ease.  

Brabant horses stand at around seventeen hands in full grown size. They are rather good looking horses with a broad chest and a compact body frame. The majority of them have hard legs and great feet. Their thicker necks allow for them to have the ability to pull and carry larger loads without any difficulty. For a horse that is rather tall in stature, they do bode short legs and a longer torso.  

To care properly for Brabant horses you must provide them with open space to roam. They can generally be rather simple and basic creatures to own, ones that tend to care for themselves often and are able to be left unattended and away from any stables. They can reside in a cold or warm climates and have no major reported health issues.
