Comparing Hot Blood Horse and Cold Blood Horse Conformation

Generally speaking, the Coldblood Horses are the draft breeds. This includes such well-known breeds as the Percheron, Belgian, Clydesdale (right), Icelandic and Shires. They were developed for slow and steady agricultural work and selected for their very calm temperaments. They are quiet, slow, heavy-boned, heavy-bodied – usually “loaded” in the front end. They are gentle giants with feathered feet and plodding manners.
