Buggy horses are usually two breeds, American Standardbred, and American Saddlebred. Wagons are usually pulled by Draft Horses.
Foam on the horse’s mouth shows that the bit is seated properly. Not too tight or loose. The horse plays with the bit in his mouth and makes the foam. In some professional horse shows points will be deducted from your score if you horse does not have foam.
No, it’s actually good. Sweating is the body’s way of cooling itself and on warm days we monitor our horse’s body temperature. If it’s too hot, we take them off the carriage or rinse them off with cool water. This helps cool them down and they like it.
Many horses in top condition or racing show a little rib. They are real athletes and it doesn’t necessarily mean they are not well fed.
When a horse bends its hind leg, he is resting…. Just like you do when you lean on something and cross your legs. It doesn’t mean it’s hurt.
Some horses seem to enjoy chewing on wood for the same reason people chew on gum. They don’t need vitamins and aren’t hungry. They just like it.
Yes we do. Our horses are farm broke then receive extra training for on the road. We take them through water, over plastic obstacles. We make sure they are use to loud noises and strange sights.
We use our horses a little over 3 hours each day, 6 days a week. We have three shifts of horses.
Many horses can work well into their early 20’s. Life expectancy is about 30 years old.
Most horses can pull 3 times their own weight, so a 1200 lb. Horse can pull about 3000 pounds. Our horses weigh about 1000 lbs. and our buggies are 1000 pounds with ball bearings to make the work easy.
