Use of the British Percheron

Percherons have many uses and to name a few, they are used for ploughing, logging, obstacle driving, they are shown "in-hand", in turnout and agricultural classes. Both pure and part bred Percherons have recently become a very popular choice as a riding horse.

The British Percheron Horse is ideal for cross breeding and the Society has a part-bred register. The part-bred must be 50% Percheron i.e. either out of a pure-bred registered Percheron or by a registered Percheron Stallion.

A Remarkable Dressage Horse

Part-bred 'Sugar lump Bravo' is by a Percheron Stallion out of a Thoroughbred mare. He has competed at dressage in the open section to Prix St. George and has gained points at every level up to Advanced.
