Everyone saw the Clysdale horses on the super bowl commercial, and Ill bet everyone looked at them in wonderment at their size, beauty, and grace of those horses. Millions of people bet on Thourobreds as they race down the track, their slender bodies flattened out against the wind, and don?t even know that there are other type of racing, using different horses. And lastly has anyone besides me ever marveled at the nimbleness, or the graceful way Arabian prance around and never seem to loose their breath? These three different types of horses that I just mentioned are the three categories in which horses are classified today, the Workhorse, the Racehorse, and the Endurance horse.The workhorse, more commonly known as the Draft horse is a horse with little use in today?s world. Back before farm machinery, these massive horses were used to pull wagons filled with children and families; plows through muddy fields, and pull stumps out of the land. Since these horses have been replaced, they can only be seen pulling small carriages, for wedding couples, or formals dances, or in pulling contests where team s are hitched to a machine called a Dynamometer, which measures in pounds a team can pull.

The shire is the biggest, broadest horse in the world, he often grows close to if not exceeding ten or eleven feet tall, and can weigh over two tons, and have no fat to spare. No matter how big the size, the Draft breed is know for its docile, and all business temperament. These horses, despite their massive size, are gentle, and ready to earn honest days worth of food.The word ?Racehorse? has become synonymous with the word ?Thoroughbred? And although Thoroughbreds make up the majority of the racing world, they are not the only horse used. Thoroughbreds are used mainly in distances less than a mile long. They are tall and gangly, no bulging muscle, just smooth, streamlined bodies, and long legs, to eat up the ground. They are rather unrefined, and have jittery, temperamental...
