Thank you for the link, rooster.

Seeing them in person is rather special.
My sister trains horses, and those movements arent easy. Not all breeds have the capacity to do them.

In the wrong hands, yes.
Training a horse does not require cruel methods. They are intellegent animals, and learn well with kindness.

I am aware that many do use terrible, cruel methods to train animals.
Some that should not be in the position to be trained.

I've seen them on TV and at the circus many years ago. The ones that make the hair stand up on my arms are the Budweiser Clydesdales. I've seen them in person and they are magnificent.

They are so sturdy looking - not like race horses that look like they're going to break a leg any moment.

A thoroughbreds legs really arent that thin, they are just very long and appear that way.
But...draft horses...bred for labor. Big hooves and thick legs. Built to toil in the feilds and pull heavy loads.
Im telling you things you already know...sorry.

Oh yes, I saw them often on TV and in some movies.

Their origins and their history are really special:

Type:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lipizzan

Citing:
"Spanish, Barb, and Arabian stock were crossed at Lipizza, and succeeding generations were crossed with the now-extinct Neapolitan breed from Italy and other Baroque horses of Spanish descent obtained from Germany and Denmark.[1] While breeding stock was exchanged between the two studs, Kladrub specialized in producing heavy carriage horses, while riding and light carriage horses came from the Lipizza stud.[2]"
