There are more than 400 horse breeds in the world, Like the mustang (Which is a wild breed normaly) There are loads of breeds that I could make a long list of...Practically this is the reason, I love horses and ride them every other weekend. Horses can have loads of different breeds because remember, there are ponies and horses... Ponies are normaly used for horse riding schools, They are very good at listening to there leaders if you let them have you as a leader and they we think that you are best pals with them, It`s a way for us to show the ponies or horses that we love them in a way.
There are approximately 267 horse breeds in the world and there are over 500 types of horse breeds.
While there are many different kinds, or breeds, of horses, they can be divided into three main groups: heavy horses, light horses, and ponies

Large Muscular horses are call heavy horses.they are usually the biggest and the tallest of horses. Originally bred in northern Europe during the Middle Ages, They were used for carrying heavy loads and pulling ploughs to till feilds.The heavy horses were also used for battle. Sometimes they wore armor just like the nights who rode them.

Light Horses are skinnier looking than the heavy breeds. They are bred for speed, agility, and stamina. thorough most light horses are used for work such as pulling carriages and ranching, some are used in races (thoroughbreds) and Show cometitions

Ponies are often thought to be baby horses, but they are actually breeds of horses that are much shorter - even when fully grown.

There are about 267 breeds of horses, and several "types" of horses, such as cobs, polo ponies, ect. They are similar to a breed, but do not nessessarily have to be a certain breed, if that makes any sense. Like, a polo pony does not have to be a welsh pony. It could be a thoroghbred, or an Arabian, or any other breed.
there are over all contries 24

Horses are bred with different purposes in mind. Some are bred for pulling carts, working on a farm, pony clubs, showing, racing, etc.
