The Budweiser Clydesdales made their first appearance on behalf of Anheuser-Busch on April 7, 1933, when they delivered a case of Budweiser to the White House in celebration of the repeal of prohibition of beer.The Clydesdale breed originated from Great Flemish horses, bred by farmers living in the 19th century along the banks of the River Clyde in Lanarkshire, Scotland. These large horses were used as draft animals that could pull loads of more than one ton at a walking speed of five miles per hour. In the mid-1800s, Canadians of Scottish descent brought the first Clydesdales to the United States where the draft horses resumed their existence on farms. Today, the Clydesdales are used primarily for breeding and show.The Budweiser Clydesdales reside at the Anheuser-Busch breweries in St. Louis, Merrimack, N.H. and Ft. Collins, Colorado for public viewing. Visitors can also see the Clydesdales up-close at Warm Springs Ranch, the premier Budweiser Clydesdales breeding establishment in Boonville, Mo. and at their training facility on the grounds of Grant’s Farm in St. Louis. Both attractions are open seasonally.Additional information about the Budweiser Clydesdales can be found online at www.anheuser-busch.com/Budweiserclydesdales/main.html.More details about the Equestfest, including ticket information, are available online at www.tournamentofroses.com/events/equestfest.
