The Belgian, of course, is native to Belgium and the breed originated there.  The Belgian is the most popular draft horse out there.

The Belgian is still used as a work horse, but now has become popular for use in the show ring and pleasure riding. Belgians generally weigh on average 200olbs, while some weigh more. Most are light and dark shades of chestnut, similar to sorrel.

Belgians can also pull tremendous amounts of weight, so they are usually in pulling competitions.
