belgian horse height

In nature, they are patient and gentle,
Belgians have thick muscles as well as
heavy bodies and short legs. They’re
16-17 hands (64 to 68 inches which is
163 to 173cm) in height and weigh
anywhere from 1,800 to 2.200 pounds
(820 to 1,000 kilograms). While it was
believed that the Flemish horse is
black Belgians typically have bay and
chestnut or sorrel or roan-colored.

However, the average horse is between
15 to 16 hand tall. Personally, I’d go
that the taller mark is the 16-hand
mark. The most populous breeds such as
horses like the Thoroughbred as well as
Quarter Horse, for instance.
Quarter Horse, average at approximately
between 15 and 16 hands, which
contributes to this norm.

The Belgian is renowned for its
friendly nature and easy to manage.
They’re still employed in all sorts of
draft-related work, including plowing
logs as well as hitting ches, pulling
carriages and Sleighs.
