Suffolk Punch Horse

Photo provided by Wikipedia


The Suffolk horse (refered to as the Suffolk Punch) is the most pure-bred of all Britain's heavy horses. They are descended from a stallion called the Horse of Ufford which was born in 1768. The Suffolk horse is stocky with short legs, and is always chestnut in colour. The breed used to be used for farming but now they are mostly seen in the show ring. They mature early and live for a long time, whilst having a friendly and docile temperament. Although being stocky, they are able to move freely with an energetic trot.
