The Belgian heavy horse is a draft horse breed primarily used as working animals. These horses come from the Brabant region of modern Belgium and these days have become popular as show horses and pleasure riding horses!
They are able to pull enormous weights because they are big and very powerful. The horse that you are going to see in the video footage beneath this text is Simon van Straten. He is one of the most beautiful draft horses we’ve ever seen. The ground seems to shake when he runs and he demonstrates so much power and grace at the same time.
In his movements, you can recognize his majesty and his personality hides in his trot. It looks like he is getting ready for his next dressage show. We can only imagine how it feels to meet him in real life…for sure that would be a lifetime experience.
Simon van Straten is magnificent with impressive floating trot, don’t you think?! Enjoy the video.
