Thoroughbred Horse for sale
Thoroughbreds are most commonly associated with horse racing but they excel in many area. They originated in Britain starting in the late 17th century for speed and racing with the influence of Arabian bloodlines. Today, they continue to dominate the racing industry but Thoroughbreds also excel in eventing, show jumping, and dressage. They come in a variety of solid colors like bay, chestnut, and black and, on very rare occasions, palomino and pinto. On average, a Thoroughbred stands between 15 and 17 hands high (60” to 68”at the shoulder) and weighs from 1,000 to 1,200 pounds with a lean build.
This selective breeding resulted in a horse with strength, speed, and stamina. The first thoroughbred arrived in the American colonies in 1730, though importation all but stopped during the Revolutionary War. Horse racing gained popularity in the U.S. during the 1800s, and Kentucky and Tennessee became centers for thoroughbred breeding and racing. The thoroughbred also influenced several other horse breeds, including the American quarter horse, standardbred, and Morgan.
The Jockey Club serves as the registry for thoroughbreds in the U.S. and Canada.
Thoroughbreds range in height from around 15 hands (60 inches) to 17 hands (68 inches). Most stand at roughly 16 hands (64 inches) tall. They typically weigh between 1,000 and 1,200 pounds.
Thoroughbred Breeding and Uses
Although they’ve been bred primarily for their racehorse qualities since their origin, thoroughbreds are also seen in many other equine sports, including jumping and dressage. They’re also used as trail horses, general riding horses, and pleasure driving horses. Many former racehorses, also known as off-the-track thoroughbreds or OTTBs, move on to become riding and driving horses.
Furthermore, thoroughbreds are often used to add refinement and athleticism to other horse breeds. Many sport horses in particular have thoroughbreds in their ancestry.
Colors and Markings
Thoroughbreds come in every solid equine coat color. Most often they are bay, brown, chestnut, black, or gray. Many breed registries don’t recognize coat patterns that include more than one color. But white facial and leg markings, such as blazes or stockings, are allowed, though many thoroughbreds are plain
