CLEVELAND, Tenn., Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The famous Check Into Cash, "Cashdales" have been touring the country making stops in fairs, festivals and parades from Mobile, Alabama to Saginaw, Michigan. As they head back to Tennessee, they'll be making a stop this week in Nashville at the Tennessee State Fair.
"We're a Tennessee based business, and we want to ensure our fellow Tennesseans have the chance to see these beautiful animals. They represent the pride and sophistication that embodies everything we do at Check Into Cash," said Steve Scoggins, Check Into Cash President. Following their stop, the Cashdales will continue their visit of stores and festivals throughout the communities that Check Into Cash operates in across the country.
Two of the horses are two of the eight members of the 2010 World Championship Team and have appeared in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York and escorted His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William and his wife, Catherine, to an event in 2011. The Cashdales will visit more than 1,100 Check Into Cash locations across the United States.
"Our friends in Tennessee should know that these world-class horses were chosen to be the nearest to the Royal couple because of their good nature," said Allan Jones, CEO of Check Into Cash. "We would like everyone to see them. They are a part of history and this is a once-in-a-lifetime event."
The horses are rare among the Clydesdale breed, as they are black with white stocking markings. Less than 9 percent of the breed carry the mixed colors, Jones said. The horses are an equally matched team at 18.2 hands tall, which is significant because to qualify for competition the pair must be the same height.
Each horse has a weight of over 2,000 pounds. Their shoes are the size of dinner plates and weigh more than 3 pounds each. Most Clydesdales carry the common traits of strength and patience, Jones said, so they adequately represent Check Into Cash and the company heritage.
Clydesdales are considered a tall breed, although originally the animals were one of the smaller breeds of draught or "draw" horses. These are horses that are primarily used for heavy hauling or pulling.
