Horse Breeds

This list of horse and pony breeds includes names for varieties of horses that are not strictly recognised as breeds but are frequently referred to as such. Despite the fact that the term “breed” has no scientifically accepted definition,a breed is typically understood to be an animal that has developed specific true-breeding traits over several generations. They may be referred to as “purebred” members. Most of the time, a breed registry is used to track the bloodlines of different horse breeds. Since open stud books are made to record the pedigrees of horse breeds that are not yet totally true-breeding, the idea is fairly flexible in the case of horses.

Registries are also regarded as the final say in whether a particular breed is listed as a “horse” or a “pony.” For horses with different phenotypes or other traits, there are also a number of “colour breed”, “sport horse,” and “gaited horse” registries that accept any animal that fits a specific set of physical characteristics, even if there is little to no proof that the trait is a true-breeding characteristic. For the purposes of this site, horses are categorised as “types” rather than “breeds” because other recording institutions or speciality groups may recognise horses from several breeds.
