When one sees the Clydesdale horse, you can see the power in the shoulders of these fine horses. These horses are not intimidated by the flag. This young lady rode proud on that powerful horse and it responded beautifully with the flag flapping back and forth above its head. The bred is originally from Scotland and it was exported throughout the world back in the 19th and early 20th centuries. It was originally a smaller build but was bred to increase its size. The males can now stand between 18 to 20 hands high and weigh as much as 2000 lbs.
