The Budweiser Clydesdales are some of the most recognizable and beloved animals in pop culture. They made their debut appearance in a Superbowl ad for the prominent American beer company 30 years ago, and have been a branding mainstay of the yearly event ever since. The Clydesales always impress with their disciplined poise and skills that seem almost impossible to be real.
Though in reality, it takes months and years of rigorous training, care and invested time by a team of horse trainers to get the Clydesales to become the amazing animals that we see on TV. Training these massively beautiful horses isn’t an easy task. It for calls someone with experience, patience and incredible skill.
In this video, you’ll see how Robin Wiltshire and his team skillfully train each Clydesdale step by step until they can perfectly perform every series of tricks and maneuvers we see during Superbowl commercial breaks. The snippet shows just a hint of what 15 years of training looks like in less than 10 minutes.
Watch the video above to see what it really takes for a horse to become a Budweiser Clydesdale.
