The Budweiser Clydesdale Stables are home to approximately 25
Clydesdale mares, geldings, stallions and foals. Anheuser-Busch
has one of the world's largest herds of Clydesdale horses and owns more than 200 nationwide.
Only the finest Clydesdales become part of the Budweiser teams. The physical requirements are strict. The ideal Budweiser Clydesdale should possess the following characteristics:
- The full-grown Clydesdale should stand 18 hands (about 6 feet) at the shoulder and weigh between 2,000 and 2,300 pounds.
- The ideal horse is bay in color, has a blaze of white on its face, a black mane and black tail.
- Most important, the Clydesdale will have white feathering on all four legs and feet. All hitch horses are geldings,
characterized by their even temperament and stronger, more natural draft horse appearance.
- Before leaving the stables, guests are invited to visit the Label Stable Gift Shop. Browse through a wide variety of Budweiser
Clydesdale gear. Hats, shirts, key chains, coasters, steins and plush animal Clydesdales are some of the many items available.
