Horse Categories

Horse breeds are loosely divided into three categories based on general temperament.

Hotbloods - speed and endurance
Coldbloods - draft horses and some ponies, suitable for slow, heavy work
Warmbloods - developed from crosses between hot bloods and cold bloods, often focusing on creating breeds for specific riding purposes, particularly in Europe.

There are over 300 breeds of horses in the world today, developed for many different uses.
