There are many people who are equally passionate about horses and they make the effort to educate themselves with everything about horses.

The varied uses of horses have led to the increasing number of breeds of horses; Kimberley is so much in love with horses that she has developed her own business of breeding horses. Horses are primarily categorized into three groups – pony, light and heavy; and the sub categories are – drafted horses, grafted horses and warm bloods.
The pony is the smallest breed, among it the Shetland pony is the smallest one, larger than this is the Connemara Pony. The one that is most suitable for young adults and teenagers is the Welsh Pony. The light breed horse is often used as a guide for disabled and the most loved breed of this category is the Arabian horse. These horses are known for their beauty, sweet, loving and graceful nature.
The Thoroughbred is yet another category of the more popular horses, along with the Quarter Horse. Among the heavy horses Percheron is a popular breed which is known for its intelligence and friendly nature.
No matter what the type of horse may be, the love people have for horses is probably because they bear a few similarities with the human beings, that of being social and learning through practice and experience.
