Thoroughbreds are most commonly associated with horse racingrnbut they excel in many area. They originated in Britain starting in the late 17th century for speed and racingrnwith the influence of Arabian bloodlines. Today, they continue to dominate the racingrnindustry but Thoroughbreds also excel in eventing, show jumping, and dressage. Theyrncome in a variety of solid colors like bay, chestnut, and black and, on very rarernoccasions, palomino and pinto. On average, a Thoroughbred stands between 15 andrn17 hands high (60” to 68”at the shoulder) and weighs from 1,000 to 1,200 poundsrnwith a lean build.
