1A horse of a heavy, powerful breed, used for pulling heavy loads.
- Waka, the Clydesdale horse pulls a wagon over a hundred years old, and the driver gives a commentary as you travel.
- These heavier horses used were largely Clydesdales and Shires.
- If you visit the livery stables you can choose between riding in a covered wagon pulled by two Clydesdales, Jock and Bess, or in a horse-drawn buggy.
From the name of the area around the River Clyde in Scotland, where they were originally bred.
