Budweiser Clydesdales

St. Louis, MO

On April 7, 1933, August A. Busch, Jr. and Adolphus Busch III surprised their father, August A. Busch, Sr., with the gift of a six-horse Clydesdale hitch to commemorate the repeal of Prohibition.  The Clydesdales made a stop in Washington, D.C., in April 1933 to reenact the delivery of one of the first cases of Budweiser to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Today, the Budweiser Clydesdales continue to be an enduring symbol of the brewer’s heritage, tradition and commitment to quality.

A step back in time takes us to the Renaissance Period. The beautiful all black horses are the Friesian and originated in Holland. During the Renaissance they were used by Knights in battle. Nobility enjoyed them as flashy carriage horses. They were even used on the farms as an overall work horse with time to ride them for pleasure. They have proven to be a valuable horse in many situations. We have a wonderful display of these horses with riders dressed to showcase Renaissance attire.
