In 2018, Express Ranches Percherons came to fruition with the purpose of teaming up with Express Clydesdales to be the equine ambassadors for Express Employment Professionals. The two gentle giant breeds will work together to represent the company at their local offices and compete at draft horse shows throughout the United States of America and Canada.
How the Heavy Horse became part of the Express Family
In 1998, Bob Funk, owner of Express Ranches and President and Vice Chairman of Express Employment Professionals, visited the longstanding Canadian Western Agribition in Regina, Saskatchewan. While visiting, he met and fell in love with the rare and beautiful black and white Clydesdales. Mr. Funk saw an opportunity to bring something entirely new and different to his home state of Oklahoma, a state steeped in its own rich equestrian history. He intuitively knew that the Clydesdales would become an unusual tourist attraction. And they have!
The Future of Draft Horses and Express Employment Professionals
While the Express Clydesdales will continue to travel the country and visit your local Express Employment Professionals’ offices, look for The Express Ranches Percherons as they compete at some of North America’s most prestigious draft horse shows.
