Horse breeds are loosely divided into three categories based on general temperament: spirited "hot bloods" with speed and endurance; "cold bloods", such as draft horses and some ponies , suitable for slow, heavy work; and " warmbloods ", developed from crosses between hot bloods and cold bloods, often focusing on creating breeds for specific riding purposes, particularly in Europe. There are more than 300 breeds of horse in the world today, developed for many different uses.

Horses and humans interact in a wide variety of sport competitions and non-competitive recreational pursuits, as well as in working activities such as police work , agriculture , entertainment, and therapy . Horses were historically used in warfare, from which a wide variety of riding and driving techniques developed, using many different styles of equipment and methods of control. Many products are derived from horses, including meat, milk, hide, hair, bone, and pharmaceuticals extracted from the urine of pregnant mares. Humans provide domesticated horses with food, water and shelter, as well as attention from specialists such as veterinarians and farriers .

Depending on breed, management and environment, the modern domestic horse has a life expectancy of 25 to 30 years. [7] Uncommonly, a few animals live into their 40s and, occasionally, beyond. [8] The oldest verifiable record was " Old Billy ", a 19th-century horse that lived to the age of 62. [7] In modern times, Sugar Puff, who had been listed in Guinness World Records as the world's oldest living pony, died in 2007 at age 56. [9]

Grooming is important in maintaining the health and happiness of your horse. In the wild, horses groom each other as well as rolling at will and rubbing against trees to maintain healthy skin. Domesticated horses must rely on humans to provide the opportunity for skin care. Grooming, no matter who does it (horses or humans) increases the circulation to the skin which then releases the oils that provide luster to the horses coat.

Horses that are frequently worked, for whatever purpose, should be kept properly groomed at all times. A shiny, healthy coat does not develop overnight. It takes daily grooming over a long period of time to achieve the supple coat of a winner. Daily grooming also eases the burden of the shedding season by removing the hair gradually.

Start grooming on the near or left side of the neck and work towards the rear of the horse. Areas that have few muscles and bones near the surface, such as the face, legs and hips, should be groomed carefully and gently. Stand near the horse as you groom it. Make fluid, not quick jerky movements that are likely to startle the horse.
