Galway Warrior

Galway Warrior is arguably the father of the Drum breed and the most famous Drum horse in the world. He was purchased as a 3 year old by Sir John Miller on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen of England. He was broken in at Windsor Stables where he was also trained to carry drums, then went on to cover mares at The Royal Paddocks, at Hampton Court Palace. He is by the immortal champion Shire stallion, Edingale Mascot. Mascot won the Shire Horse championship in England many times before being exported to the USA in 1984. He is one of the best known Shire stallions of the ‘80s, and has sired some fabulous offspring, including Galway Warrior. Warrior was imported to the US by Black Forest Shires and Gypsy Horses where he lived out the remainder of his days. He passed away in 2009. Warrior was the 2003 BreyerFest Special Guest and is a Limited Edition Breyer model.
