Thoroughbred

The Thoroughbred is a horse breed best known for its use in horse racing. Although the word "thoroughbred" is sometimes used to refer to any breed of purebred horse, it technically refers only to the Thoroughbred breed. Thoroughbreds are considered a hotblooded horse, known for their agility, speed and spirit.

The head should be correctly proportioned to the rest of the body, displaying a good flat forehead and wide-set intelligent eyes. Carried relatively low, the head should sit well on a neck which is somewhat longer and lighter than in other breeds.

Good quality Thoroughbreds have high withers, a deep chest, a short back, good depth of hindquarters, a lean body, and long legs.

Color: Thoroughbred horses are most often bay, seal brown, chestnut, black, or gray. The can also be roan, palomino or white. Coat patterns that have more than one color on the body, such as Pinto or Appaloosa, are not recognized by the breed registries.

Size: Thoroughbreds usually stand between 15 and 17 hands high.

Weight: Thoroughbred can weigh in range of 1000 to 1200lbs (450-550kg).

Temperament: Being a hot-blooded horse, the Thoroughbred is courageous and alert. Sometimes nervous, these horses are spirited and excitable. As true racing machines, the Thoroughbred is fast and athletic.

Life expectancy: Average life span of a Thoroughbred horse is somewhere between 25 to 35 years, depending on the health care provided.

Origin: The Thoroughbred's genetic origin is Arabian. The founding Arabian stallions which were brought to Britain in the late 1600s and early 1700s were bred to domestic mares.

Thoroughbred uses:

Although the Thoroughbred is primarily bred for racing, the breed is also used for show jumping and combined training because of its athleticism, and many retired and retrained race horses become fine family riding horses, dressage horses, and youth show horses. The larger horses are sought after for hunter/jumper and dressage competitions, whereas the smaller horses are in demand as polo ponies.

Thoroughbred influence: Arabian, Barb and Turk.
