Welcome!

Chettle Percherons

The Ohio Percheron Breeders Association (OPBA) was established in 1912, with the goal of promoting interest in breeding, showing and marketing Percheron horses and the education of our youth and adult members alike. After all Ohio is the heart of the Percheron breed! Ohio is proud to be the state with the most Percheron registrations, the most members in the Percheron Horse Association of America, and the largest state breeders club.

Ohio is proud to be the home of:


Percheron Horse

Disposition and Characteristics

Diamond Farm

The Percheron horse is renowned for its combination of power and grace. With a very pleasing disposition, he is proud, alert, intelligent and a willing worker. Percherons are usually black or grey, but there are also sorrels, bays and roans. Many Percherons have white markings on their head and feet, but excessive white is undesirable. Percherons range in height from 15 to 19 hands high, most are between 16-2 and 17-3 hands high. They can weigh up to 2600 pounds with the average around 1900 pounds.

The Percheron is very versatile. They are readily adapted to varying climates and conditions. They have the strength to pull heavy loads and the grace to pull a fine carriage. Percherons can also be ridden and some have been known to make fine jumpers and dressage performers.
