The Suffolk Punch, also historically known as the Suffolk Horse or Suffolk Sorrel, is an English breed of draught horse

The breed takes the first part of its name from the county of Suffolk in East Anglia, and the name “Punch” from its solid appearance and strength

It is a heavy draught horse which is always chestnut in colour, traditionally spelled “chesnut” by the breed registries

Suffolk Punches are known as good doers, and tend to have energetic gaits

We hope you find our A-Z Index of Equestrian Terms useful
