HORSE FARM AROUND THE CORNER

There are a lot of horse farms nearby. Many of them teach riding. Others just enjoy breeding and raising horses.

Many people breed giant horses, originally the mounts for knights wearing armor. Considering how heavy a knight in armor was, a normal horse couldn’t carry one. For this, the big horses like Belgians and Percherons were bred. When not being used as war horses, they could pull a plow or a cart. These horse don’t look huge until you get close and then you realize they’re the size of trucks.
