When they say “Gentle Giant” they are probably talking about Big Jake. At 18 hands and roughly 2,200 pounds, Jake fits the term Giant….but his attitude and willingness is definitely Gentle.

Jake has been on our farm since he was 2 years old and he has been around thousands of people in that time. We use him to give kids and adults rides in our draft horse carrousel and he loves all the attention. He has also been used pulling wagons of people through an animal park where he has seen any kind of animal you can think of. He does well in traffic and can be driving single or double.

Big Jake has also done a lot of trail riding under a western saddle and he can be ridden bareback as well. He loves to have a bath and stands well for the farrier. Jake gets along well with other animals in the pasture too.  Jake is beginner-safe and he will get into a nice lope if you ask him to.
