The Percheron is a powerful horse that comes from La Perche in northern France. They have strong horses as their ancestors were used in medieval times,. carrying knights and heavy armour. In the 18th century, they were crost with Arabs, resulting in greater quality and better action. One of the tallest horses that ever lived was a Percheron, standing at 21hh. The breed has a more elegant appearance, low action and a finer head than most heavy breeds due to its Arabian blood.
