CLEVELAND, Tenn., Aug. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Cashdales," the legendary Check Into Cash Clydesdale horses, will be at the Check Into Cash Alliance location at 2436 W. State Street, near Butler Rodman Park, on Tuesday, August 6, from 2-5pm. Alliance store manager Patty says, "We hope that everyone who has a chance can take a few minutes to see these beautiful and exquisite animals. This is something that happens once in a lifetime."
The horses are two of the eight members of the 2010 World Championship Team. The team has 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.
The horses are rare among the Clydesdale breed, as they are black with white stockings. Less than nine percent of the breed carry the mixed colors. 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 three pounds each.
"Most Clydesdales carry the common traits of strength and patience," said Check Into Cash CEO Allan Jones, "so they represent Check Into Cash and the company heritage very well."
