British Percheron Horse Society
According to information found on The British Percheron
Horse Society website, the group was established in 1918 England
with a collection of thirty six stallions and three hundred
and twenty one mares brought from all over France and North
America to start a brood stock of these horses. Many stipulations
were then introduced to the importation of any new stock to
the blood line. In present times the society continues to
uphold a strict, regimented induction of any new stock, now
relying heavily on the information provided by DNA verifications
of pure bred status.
Around the world, the British Percheron Horse Society is
known as a stand alone society, "not connected to any other
Percheron Breed Society" and holds their own unique blood
line from other Percheron groups. "...The main aim of the
Society was to encourage the breeding of a clean legged draught
horse which were powerful, active and quick in work with a
good temper and easy to handle..." The society is managed
by a group of individuals including a president, treasurer,
committee members, council members and a secretary that take
care of the business behind the horse group. As a member of
the British Percheron Horse Society a member can access information
about updated news, current and upcoming events, access to
the societies stud book and a gallery of images. A newsletter
is also sent out to members three times a year.
"...One of the most docile and good-natured of any..." breeds,
these sturdy standing horses are a favorite among many horse
lovers for several of their admirable characteristics. "...The
British Percheron Horse is essentially a heavy draught horse
possessing great muscular development combined with style
and activity. It should possess ample bone of good quality,
and give a general impression of balance and power..." Within
society regulations, the coloring of this magnificent horse
must be black or grey with only minimal touches of white and
stand to no less than over sixteen hands in height.
With a society such as the British Percheron Horse Society,
the true lineage of these beautiful and useful horses will
hopefully be preserved for many years and generations to come.
You need not be a horse owner, necessarily, to join the society
but they do require that their members "...will help to protect
and support this magnificent breed of heavy horse." For more
