Today's breeds of Heavy Horses are the
product of generations of careful breeding, which has developed
these animals into the horses that we all know today. The protection
of the future of these animals rest with the individual Breed
Societies, each of which issue a standard against which an individual
horses can be measured. The Breed Societies also keep a register
of pure and part breed horses which can be used to trace the
animals bloodlines back for many generations.
