Horse. Domestic horse (Lat. Equus ferus caballus) is an animal of perissodactyls family, domesticated and the only surviving subspecies of wild horse (Equus ferus), extinct in the wild, except of a small population of the Przewalski horse. The horse was widely used by man up to the present day.

Horses. Painting The Horse. Horses in paintings. Ancestor of domestic horse is not a Przewalski horse, as thought previously, but extinct specie of wild horse, the Tarpan. It is assumed that the horse was first domesticated by the ancient people in the Southern pre-Urals on parking of Mullin and Davlekanovo (Bashkortostan).

There also have been found the oldest remains of the horse dating back to VII-VI millennium BC. In the steppes of Eurasia horses were domesticated thousands of years before they get to the south, on the territory of the ancient Middle Eastern civilizations. it was assumed, until the excavations in Mullin, that the oldest horse was domesticated in the steppes of Ukraine.

Hence, the variety of domestic horses such as fast pace horses and dry riding horses were needed in the cavalry. Suffolk punch and theavy team  breeds of horses could drag and carry heavy loads. Lightweight team horses, that were prone for trotting, were good for the lightweight carts and carriages for transporting people. Big, stately and more slow riding horses were good for heavy rider (like a knight clad in armor), and for a colorful military parade on the square, where the riders were primarily required to "show" themselves. Smaller and uglier, with a lot of "defects" in the exterior, but much more hardy and tolerant to poor feeding, the horses of mountain and steppe areas were suitable for long migrations and could carry the heavy packs. Mountain Horse could also easily pass along with the rider and packs on narrow mountain paths and fearlessly jumped the abyss.

 Horses. Painting The Horse. Using of horses. People tried to breed and teach the horses to fulfill the most different and sometimes very specific needs. For example, in Iceland, there is an ancient breed of Icelandic horses – small and shaggy animals - local residents have used them from old times in the fields. However, so that these horses were not trampling furrows, just made by them, people have learnt horses to walk a special gait, in Icelandic- the Teltow, when the horse alternately puts the right front, then the right hind, left front and left hind legs.

While one foot is lifted, the other three are on the ground. Thus Icelandic horses were just "stepping over" the furrow and people fixed that skill in the next horse generations. Today Icelanders are proud of their horses. They are still small (about 130 cm) and ugly, but strong and endurable enough to carry safely on their backs an adult and a famous Teltow speeds up to 20 km / h without any special contrivances and forcing.

The need for lightweight harness horse, running a confident trot or an amble and so convenient for transporting people in the carriage, not only led to the fact that in some countries managed to breed such horses, but also provided the development of such a powerful global industry for today as trotters’ and pacers’ racing. [3] The desire to get a riding horse as more rapid as possible in gallop, led to the fact that appeared the first races, and later on these races was bred a needed horse - the fastest today thoroughbred Horse Pedigree. Race testing also gave results – horses which have passed racing for several generations, had bigger hight, were more harmonious and endurable.
