Are Clydesdale horses the heaviest in the world?



  1. 0 Votes

    The single heaviest horse recorded was actually a Shire. His name was Sampson, and he weighed in at 3,360 lbs. (1,524 kg). This British breed was bred to carry soldiers with heavy chain mail and weaponry, and can carry over 400 lbs.

    On average, Clydesdales weigh between 1700 and 2200 lbs, while Shires weigh 1700 to 2000 or more, so the breeds have a similar weight distribution.
