Horses chosen for the Budweiser Clydesdale hitch must be at least three years of age, stand approximately 18 hands – or six feet – at the shoulder, weigh an average of 2,000 pounds, must be bay in color, have four white legs, and a blaze of white on the face and black mane and tail. A gentle temperament is very important as hitch horses meet millions of people each year.

A single Clydesdale hitch horse will consume as much as 20-25 quarts of feed, 40-50 pounds of hay and 30 gallons of water per day.

Each hitch travels with a Dalmatian. In the early days of brewing, Dalmatians were bred and trained to protect the horses and guard the wagon when the driver went inside to make deliveries.

Express Clydesdales will be @ fundraising event Clydesdales for a Cause @ Tanger Outlets, Pooler Thurs. March 16 4-7PM.

This is a benefit for Children’s Miracle Network for Dwaine & Cynthia Willett Children’s Hospital of Savannah. Carriage rides, pictures & more after Tanger Outlet’s Greening of the Fountain. Contact (912) 232-9800 for details.
