Intro

The drum horse makes a great heavy riding horse that has proven to be both a versatile and athletic mount. They are a relatively new breed to the US, but they have a rather distinguished history.

Origins

Drum horses were originally used by the Queen of England for her ceremonial band. The animals had to be large and sturdy enough to carry large kettle drums during any type of pageantry.

This meant that they were required to carry a great deal of weight through crowds of people. The mounted drummers needed their hands free to play, so they controlled their animals via reins attached to their stirrups.

The drum is an elegant heavy horse breed that utilizes the finest examples of the shire, clydesdale and gypsy cob breeds.

In the US the drum horses are favored more as riding & competition horses, both mounted and driving. They make sturdy, athletic mounts with a level head.
