The most important gat of a draft horse is a trot
The Belgian is the most popular draft horse in the USA. The 4 other most popular draft horse breeds are: Shire, Percheron, Clydesdale, and Haflinger. I should also add that there is a sixth most popular draft horse - the Friesian.
They are most famously known for the running walk.
Upright gait. Firstmate
the difference between a draft horse and a thoroughbred, well. there is size. usually draft horses are HUGE and thoroughbreds are smaller, for speed. they both have large muscles but for different purposes. the thoroughbred for racing and the draft breeds for pulling heavy items. there is also that a draft horse has feathering around it's hoofs and legs. draft (most likely about 18hh) thoroughbred (most likely about...16hh) (i'm sorry but the pictures did not show up :( )
Draft horses like Clydesdales, Percherons, Belgiums.
The most loved horse depends on the person. Some people like draft horses and some prefer ponies. The most common horse is the Quarter horse so I guess you could call the Quarter horse the most loved breed.
The canter is a controlled, three-beat gait performed by a horse. It is a natural gait possessed by all horses, faster than most horses' trot but slower than the gallop.
By most accounts, the Shire, next comes the Clydesdale.
All draft breeds tend to be very gentle and kind, but it really varies from individual horse to horse. If you want a gentle draft horse, get a middle-aged (mid to late teens) gelding, as they are usually more calm than mares or young stallions/geldings
The American Cream Draft comes to mind. It is the size of a draft horse, but has a coat ranging from buttery palomino to perlino. Most are almost white. It has a nose rather unlike a draft, but more like a Quarter Horse. This could also refer to a Haflinger, which can be cream colored but also ranges into the deep gold palomino range.
John Locke's Second Treatise on Government was the most important influence on Thomas Jefferson's draft of the Declaration of Independence.
Shires, Clydsdales, really most draft horses tend to be tall. The tallest horse in the world is a Shire, and most of the worlds tallest horses are Shires.
Most draft horses can pull heavy loads. Clydesdales, Belgiums, Percherons, Shires etc are draft horses.
horses with "fluff" by their hooves are called feathers and most draft horses have feathers.The most popular featherd horse is probley thr fresian.Hope i helped!
widths can vary, being the measure of how wide a horse is. The width of a skinny horse would vary to that of a fat horse, the breed also affects it, a big draft horse is most often wider than a miniature pony.

The Arabian horse can compete in and do most anything you can think of doing with a horse. They typically can compete up to the highest levels in any sport with the exception of heavy draft work.
Large draft breeds, because of their size. Particuarly the ones in heavy work.
Stopping a horse is the same in most every gait. You should sit deeply in the saddle, close your lower leg around the girth and give gentle but firm squeezes on the reins to let the horse to know that you wish to slow down or stop.
Typically the breeds of choice for heavy pulling is the Belgian or the Shire. Both of these breeds tend to be the strongest of the draft horse breeds.
a draft horse, yes most likely a Clydesdale or Belgian Work horse, but on a strength per size ratio, the little Shetland pony can pull twice it's own weight. Compared to the larger draft breeds which on average can only pull about half their own weight
It would most likely take 500 draft horses to pull that amount of weight. A draft horse can easily pull twice it's own weight, so an average draft horse weighing 2,000 pounds can pull 4,000 pounds.
While the buffalo was the most important resource, the second most important resource became the horse.
The raise and race most and the best race horse on average.
Most definately. Especially when the horse is one of the larger draft breeds such as a Clydesdale or Shire. In fact these large horses are where the term 'horsepower' came from.
