      Originally bred by the Nez Percé Indians in the north-west of the states, the breed has always been prized for its speed, sure-footedness and for its stamina.

How well do you know your horse breeds? Take this quiz to find out. Most people appreciate the beauty of horses. But enjoying them and being able to identify them are two different things.

        Hi. I was wondering what kind of horses were used in the 'Old West' times (about ss). Wyoming to Texas kind of area. I have the usual suspects; mustangs, quarter, american saddlebred, standarbred, pintos. Also I have listed all the breeds from Red Dead Redemption. I am working on a story set in America sometime during the Wild West. Today, the Shire horse is known as the tallest of the modern draft breeds, averaging hands (70 inches) at the withers, sometimes reaching hands (76 inches). Their great height is coupled with a hefty size; most animals weigh more than 2, pounds.
