The Sugarbush Draft horse is a critically endangered breed. Due to the lack of genetic diversity in the Sugarbush Draft Horse Registry in 2008, the SDHR began searching for viable methods to save this breed. To our knowledge, there is no other "riding type" draft horse breed in existence, as well as no other "appaloosa" colored full size draft horses in North America.

The Belgian draft horse was developed in the fertile pastures of Belgium. In 1866, the first Belgian arrived on American soil. In 1885 men in Wabash, Ind., started a business importing Belgian stallions and selling them to horse breeders throughout the Midwest.
