BROOKLYN SUPREME, ONE OF THE BIGGEST HORSES IN HISTORY

The Brooklyn Supreme, a draft horse known for its massive size and strength, was born in the early 1900s and stood at a height of over 6.5 feet tall, making him one of the largest horses in history. Even though he was imposing in size, Brooklyn Supreme had a calm and gentle disposition.


A farmer owned Brooklyn Supreme, who was originally used for farm work in New York. When visitors to the circus saw Brooklyn Supreme, they were amazed by his impressive size, so the circus owner bought him and put him on display as a curiosity. Brooklyn Supreme quickly became a major attraction at the circus. Although Brooklyn Supreme was large, he was extremely agile and graceful, and he was trained to perform a range of stunts and tricks.


Known as the “Eight Horse Wonder,” Brooklyn Supreme is known as one of the strongest horses in history due to his ability to carry 8 men at a time.


His time in the circus ended when he was retired to a farm in California, where he lived out the remainder of his life in peace. He died at the age of 20, leaving behind a legacy of being one of the most important and powerful horses in history.
