Percheron horses, massive in size, were used to clear rock and plow these mountains. My mother told the story of one of their horses, a dapple grey named Charlie, who was so large that she and her four siblings could all ride at one time.

Percherons are big, powerful horses that ride well and work hard. Their temperament allows them to be gentle enough for new riders, but stern enough for when it's time to go to war.
