Suffolk Punches are tough, well balanced, and extremely powerful, smaller sized heavy horses. They are able to thrive on moderate rations, begin work at three years of age and work well into their twenties. They have, on the whole, kind natures and are willing workers. Suffolk Punches are today used mainly by breweries and for showing. A few are still used on the land in Britain, more so abroad. Suffolk Punch Horses stand about 15 to 16 hands high.
