Not only are horses a large part of American culture, but they are a large part of cultural worldwide on a historical scale. Horses gave civilizations a number of advantages in terms of transportation, agriculture, and warfare. Today, we are not as reliant on them, but they are still a part of how we live.
Depending on the breed, horses can be used for a variety of tasks. Working horses, show horses, and race horses all have different breeds and temperaments, which make them ideal for specific tasks. Now we will go into the main differences between warm and cold blooded animals.
Warm blooded versus cold blooded
While warm blooded and cold blooded are not official terms, these are the two main differences between the breeds. In general, warm blooded horses such as Arabians are more skittish and fiery, hence the name. They are primarily used as race horses as well as show horses. In general, warm blooded horses are faster.
Cold blooded horses are typically larger animals designed for agricultural work. They are more mild-mannered and much less likely to buck or take off running. The most recognizable cold blooded draft horse is the Clydesdale, which appeared on the Budweiser ads.
There are much more differences between the breeds, but this is a basic overview of warm blooded versus cold blooded animals. In addition, there are some breeds that are a good combination of the two that can be used for either racing or draft work.
