Thoroughbred Horse

A Thoroughbred horse is usually what people picture when they think of horses. Specially trained riders called jockeys ride thoroughbred horses in some of the world’s most popular horse races, including the Kentucky Derby.

What a lot of people don’t know is how great thoroughbreds are off the racetrack. Thoroughbreds are highly praised for their energy, personality, and work ethic. They are also very athletic and attractive horses. This is why they are growing in popularity in other horse sports like dressage, show jumping, hunters, and eventing.
