Proud to say I am living out my dream after joining the historic 80 year legacy of being a Budweiser Clydesdale Handler. I am involved in the detailed daily preparation to ready a horse for photo events including grooming, and braiding. A large part of being an Anheuser Busch employee is ensuring a positive tourist Clydesdale Experience during any event for each and every guest while promoting Anheuser's commitment to tradition and quality. Additionally, I contribute, along with the other members of our team in Busch stable upkeep, basic equine and dalmatian care, “One Horse” off-site events,and related Clydesdale Operation functions.
