Why Breed Horses?

Apart from the obvious need to increase the number of animals, breeding is also undertaken to improve the quality of animals

By selecting (hence controlling) the mother and father of a new foal, a horse breeder can exercise a degree of control over the characteristics of a new animal.

Over time, breeding has allowed us to produce animals more suited to specific tasks: ~breeds with greater endurance so they can be ridden longer distances ~breeds that run faster, for racing ~breeds with greater strength to be used for heavier work
