The Percheron breed originated in France and was brought to the US in the post Civil War period to rebuild the Country. Our Breed Registry is the oldest of the Draft Breeds as it started in 1876. Percherons were originally called the Norman Horse as they came from Normandy France.
GROUP DESCRIPTION: Under the vision of Joe Ricketts, the Jackson Fork Ranch Percherons while a relatively young program has quickly made a mark on the breed. He has brought together excellent Percheron mares with outstanding training and a commitment to pair with only the best North American stallions.
