About the Sugarbush Draft Horse
Big, bold, and beautiful: these are the words that first come to mind when you see a Sugarbush Draft Horse. Beneath the spotted hide, you'll find horses that are sweet, kind, and gentle. They're bred to carry a rider instead of work in harness, giving horse lovers in search of a larger mount an extra-large saddle horse with the even disposition of a draft. That gentle giant attitude makes them suitable for novices and children, but their agility and comfortable gaits make them versatile all-around mounts that can grow with their riders' ability.
The Sugarbush Draft is a medium-sized draft, unlike its European cousins. They typically range from 1500 to 1900 pounds, and rarely reach 17 hands. This smaller size makes it easier for the rider to mount up and find tack; it also means they can fit into a standard horse trailer. Most Sugarbush Draft Horses love learning new things and willingly dive into any task asked of them.
The Sugarbush Draft is truly unique in the horse world. Whether it's their flashy coats or their easy-going disposition, these horses draw a crowd.
