But, not every horse born in the Budweiser stables is guaranteed a spot on the Clydesdale team. Clydesdales can be born with a variety of markings. For a Budweiser horse, the vetting process begins at birth. A few lucky Clydesdales are shipped off to the training stables in Merrimack New Hampshire. Here they participate in a training program that helps them gain the strength and maturity necessary to make the team.
But, its not all work and no play for these Clydesdales. A typical day for a Budweiser horse includes lots of playtime and of course lots of hay.
