They can be used for harness work and for shows or competitions alike.

The Brabant horses can be considered calm creatures. Most are sweet, loving, docile, and biddable. Those that own them put them to use on farmlands and such and all have noted that they are enjoyable animals to have around. Some horses are thought of as not being very trainable, but this style can certainly be trained with ease.

Brabant History

The Brabant horses derived from Belgium. These horses have quite a history coming from significant dignitaries using them on a regular basis for being bred for use in shows. It has been noted that the Brabant horses were used to carry those involved in the Norman Conquest of Britain during 1066. They are a very large horse variation that was reliable and dependably used on missions and in the military as well. The Belgium people adored these animals and still to this day hold them to a very high standard and were given a studbook in the middle of the eighteenth century. In the United States, this was opened sometime in the late 1800’s. They were almost extinct in the nineteen hundreds as a result of the common folk utilizing cars and other forms of public transport versus the traditional means. However, they survived thanks to the many locals who truly valued their presence.
