They are sweet and patient, certainly enough to be used for little ones riding, though stern enough to participate in a war if needed. This breed is extremely well rounded and athletic.

They bode short but very strong legs and have hard feet to help them outlast those long journeys. Generally, they are easily identifiable by their longer manes and tails and signature gray colors.

Percheron History

Percheron horses come from France. They have been recognized as one of the heaviest breeds to come out of this area. They bode a long pathology, one that contains a lot of Arabian blood lines in it, which in turn can create the current style of gray fur coatings that they all bode. The breed is categorized as one of the larger styles, and for their dominant size they have been utilized along with the French knights during many wars, including the Battle of Poitiers. Not long afterward, a man named Robert, the Count of Rotrou, encouraged the breed to obtain an Oriental influence. They accomplished this by importing them sometime during the late 1090's. Experts agree that this breed has no real foundation, some assuming they were just used as warhorses during the Middle Ages. They went on to work as coach horses, agricultural workhorses, and also more popularly used as riding horses in their homeland. They went on to have sires made by the Royal Stud at Le Pin for Arab styles in the middle of the seventeenth century.
