WHY IS THE SUFFOLK PUNCH SO SPECIAL?

These majestic horses helped shape our rural landscape and was vital to Britain's social history. As the UK industrialised and its population grew, the Suffolk Punch pulled the plough, cut the corn and carried the wheat to the mill to feed the towns.

Strong, with a good temperament, a Suffolk Punch is a gentle giant, very good at working hard. They also look beautiful with their shining chesnut coat and solid stature. N.B - (Suffolk horse spelling of chestnut is without the 't')
