The Australian Heavy Horses website

The Gateway to heavy horse links, information & contacts in Australia and overseas


We have set this website up to be a fairly widely-encompassing gateway to other useful sites and a horse forum relating to the clydesdale horse, percheron, shire and other draught horses throughout the world, but more specifically to Australia. Each breed society has a webpage linked there, too.

If you know of other sites which would be useful for us to link to, please contact us via the email link at the bottom centre of this page.

The popular Australian Heavy Horse Forums and chat area is reached through the link on the left, and is a large question and answer venue where many breeders and enthusiasts worldwide respond fairly promptly to all manner of questions.

The Forums are also a source of classified advertisements- items or horses clydesdale, shire or others for sale, harness wanted, and draught horse breeders studs- and notices of upcoming events, shows and working or field days, and then results, after it is all over.

The Horsey Gifts link is to a new venue where more unique clydesdale or draught horse books, souvenirs and useful items may be bought. Many items are custom-made or specially designed and printed in-house.

If you are looking for some specific gentle giants memorabilia, please just ask us- we might have it anyway, or know where to get it!

The links on the left are for heavy horse magazines and also commercial businesses which serve the draught horse industry well..
