Horse Breeds

Domestic horses: According to some scientists, it is said that the first people to domesticate the horse were the Scythians. It has been serving people for an estimated 5500 years. It is doubtful that today's modern horses are descended from the Asian wild horse. Some zoologists argue that it is derived from the European wild horse. Domesticated horses have many lineages. Today, the pedigree of small pony horses and Thoroughbred Arabian horses is not known with certainty.
Horses live 20-30 years, some mares give birth up to 15 years old. They conceive for eleven months and give birth to a cub. The cub is born with its eyes open, and after a few minutes it gets up and begins to follow its mother. Load pulling and carrying horses are large-bodied with thick legs. Riding and racing horses have thin long legs. Although there is no envy among the horses, they have the habit of envying each other. This is evident in racing, trench jumping, and fence jumping. They envy each other and want to run faster and get ahead. There are those who run at a speed of 60-70 km per hour.
If a male donkey is paired with a mare, a mule is obtained. A type of mule called bardo or ester is obtained from the union of a stallion (male horse) and a female donkey. Both hybrids do not breed. The mule is more durable than the bardo. If his feet are broken, he will not heal again.

Arabian horse: It is an excellent riding and racing horse that is very durable. It is derived from the Central Asian and Anatolian horses that crossed into Arabia. It is more durable than English horses and can travel for 24-28 hours without drinking any water.

English horse: It is a good riding and racing horse. It is bred specifically for racing. It is a lineage derived from the crossing of Arabian stallion and English native mares. It has longer legs than the Arabian horse.

Pony: The difference from horses is only their height. Horses with a shoulder height of up to 150 cm are called ponies. It is a small, calm and hardy horse breed. It has various sizes. . It is a good mount for children. It is also used in mines as it is used in light touring cars. Shetland, Iceland and Norway ponies are famous. Each country has its own ponies.


The color of the horse is called frost. may change until the frost foal completes its growth. however, at the end of the growing age, the color of the feathers forms the true frost and can continue until old age. after that, the feathers start to lose their color gradually.


1. Covering hairs: These are the thin and short hairs that cover the body.

2. Guard hairs: Mane, bangs, tail and heel hairs. In particular, these feathers are thinning, thickening, dense, hardening and lengthening feathers that vary according to the breed and climate of the horse. In addition, these hairs are found in the nose, inside the ears and around the eyes.

3. Sensation Hairs: These long and stiff hairs are found around the mouth and between the nostrils. Their bases are in contact with the ends of the tactile nerves. These hairs are the most developed elements of the horse's tactile organs.

4. Fine feathers: These are the protective feathers that change according to the seasons. They emerge in winter to support the above-mentioned covering feathers and are shed in the spring. The feathers that cover the foal's skin are also among them; they are soft and become denser in cold climates.

These feathers, which are listed above, change and renew from time to time. They are the fastest changing eyelash hairs. It is the mane, heel and tail feathers that change at the latest or even years later. The cover feathers are renewed twice a year, in spring and autumn.

Musculoskeletal system
Although the number of bones varies, there are generally about 205 bones that make up the skeleton (excluding those of the tail). The biggest difference between the horse and the human is that the bone called the clavicle (collar bone) in humans is absent in horses. The leg bones of horses are connected to the spine by strong muscles, tendons and connective tissues.
It provides support to the skeletal muscles and protection for the viscera, and its parts have sufficient mobility to allow the horse to move, lie down or graze at different speeds.
A horse has 128 muscles in its body. These are made up of connective tissue fibers that relax and contract to produce movement. There are two types of muscles: voluntary muscles that are near the surface and controlled by the horse, and involuntary muscles that control the viscera. Of these muscles, 52 are in the trunk, 23 are in the front, 33 are in the back, and 20 are in the head. Horse muscles are very rich in glycogen.

Intelligence and learning
The horse is not intelligent. On the other hand, it has location recognition sensitivity. He is very sensitive and has a good memory. The rider should know how to benefit from these features of the horse during the whole training and working period. When he succeeds in a move, he never forgets if he is caressed and loved. He does not forget the punishment given. For this reason, it should be avoided as it is possible to punish the horse.
