Adventure Clydesdales on Dartmoor are doing their bit to save the magnificent heavy horses by offering treks across the remote parts of the moor on these huge beasts.<br />

Now listed as vulnerable by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust their are less than a thousand breeding mares left of a breed that was once commonplace on most of the farms in Scotland before the arrival of the internal combustion engine.
