I absolutely love the Budweiser Clydesdales. They are treated and like kings. The carriage driver is extremely skilled at containing them. They originally went down to the docks to pick up the Budweiser
beer and as there was not a lot of room on the dock he had to turn them round from behind to be parallel with the ship. When they weren't needed to collect the beer in modern times, they were kept as a display team and represent Budweiser. The
driver takes them all over the US. There are actually 3 teams of 8 plus 2 extra for each group and they are strictly put in to size order when they are harness to balance the wagon. Their horse boxes are unbelievable and the cart
is put in the back of the last one. They travel in a large convoy with expert handlers.
When they do a demonstration in an arena, the driver makes them perform the turnaround that they used to do at
the docks. One time the horses and carriage fell over after they had successfully completed this manoeuvre and their handlers carefully and skilfully removed them from the decorative harness and got them all up on their feet, unharmed.
