After seeing the Budweiser Clydesdales on television for years, it can become quite an exciting day to see them in person and hitched to the wagon. Towering over 6 feet and weighing between 1,800 and 2,300 lbs., seeing an entire hitch of 8 horses can be a grand experience for both children and adults.
However, on certain occasions people can meet these beautiful, majestic animals up close and personal during "One Horse Shows". When the 8-horse hitch is too big for an area, or may not be allowed due to rules and regulations, a one-horse show can be set up instead to let a majestic Clydesdale represent Budweiser at an event.
Those fortunate guests who are able to attend these exciting events or places by chance or through a special advertisement sponsored event, will get to take their picture with the Budweiser Clydesdale and be able to pet him. Guests can also get more insight into the daily lives of these gentle giants. During these events they will often learn plenty about the care and maintenance of the cherished Clydesdales, including answers to questions about feeding, grooming, and exercise. It can be a fun, fantastic experience no matter your age!
