In the past, draft horses were extremely important for agriculture. The Belgians have also left their mark in this area by developing a very robust draft horse. Around the beginning twentieth century, a very large export of Belgian draft horses came about. Similarly to the United States and Canada where these horses are still used by the Amish people. The type of horse you see in the next video, which has gone viral all over the World is nowadays called in Belgium ‘ The Flemish horse’. See at the following video of “Team of horses pulling a semi truck and trailer. Horsepower! Look at Molly and Prince go!” by Lizzie Hershberger.
