About Drum HorsesAbout Drum Horses



Drum horses were originally used by the Queen of England for her ceremonial band. They had to be large and sturdy enough to carry large kettle drums during any type of pageantry. This meant that they were required to carry a great deal of weight through crowds of people. The mounted drummers needed their hands free to play, so they controlled their animals via reins attached to their stirrups.  

They are an elegant heavy horse that utilizes the finest examples of the shire, Clydesdale, and gypsy cob breeds. On average they are 16 hands tall.  

In the US drum horses are favored more as riding and competition horses, both mounted and driving. They make sturdy, athletic mounts with a level head.
