English Thoroughbred Horses for sale on ehorses

Bred over centuries to be the ultimate equine racing athlete, the English Thoroughbred captures the hearts and minds of horse-lovers across the world. Horse racing, “the Sport of Kings”, now has a huge following on every continent. A day at the races is a treat for many people and millions more enjoy watching racing on TV. To buy an English Thoroughbred is the ultimate dream for many ambitious riders since Thoroughbreds are outstanding sports horses. Breeders frequently sell an English Thoroughbred at specialist bloodstock sales, although there are many private sellers too. These intelligent, sensitive animals can bond closely with the right person.

Use and characteristics of English Thoroughbred Horses

Although English Thoroughbreds mostly require special care and management, their performance and spirit make up for it. Standing between 15 hands (60 inches/152 cm) and 17 (68 inches/173 cm) hands high, these tall, deep-barrelled horses require confident handling. For this reason, it is generally experienced equestrians who buy an English Thoroughbred. Racing Thoroughbreds tend to be of two types: flat racers and steeplechasers. Flat racers are bred for speed over limited distances, while steeplechasers are larger, stronger and also slower, as they jump obstacles while they are racing over longer courses. When vendors sell an English Thoroughbred for racing, they are often described by category, as either sprinters, stayers, or middle-distance horses. Thoroughbreds and their crosses with other breeds make successful eventers, show jumpers and dressage horses.

Origin and history of breeding English Thoroughbred Horses

Horse racing has taken place in many countries since ancient times. The Greeks and Romans enjoyed exciting and dangerous chariot races and their horses had a following as big as celebrities and football teams do today! However, the ultimate racing horse emerged in Britain in the eighteenth century, and the reason for this is complex and fascinating. Although described as English Thoroughbreds, several types and breeds of horses contributed to their creation. Many people have heard of the three founding fathers of the “Oriental” type (Arabians, Turkomans and Barbs), who are held to be the originators of the Thoroughbred. These three are the Byerley Turk, the Godolphin Arabian (or Barb) and the Darley Arabian. In fact, many imported sires contributed to the Thoroughbred. However, far fewer people know of the other horses, some of them pony-sized, who contributed in early times. These were the Galloways of Scotland and the somewhat larger Hobbies of Ireland, both of which were extremely fast riding and racing horses, and very well-known from late medieval times onward. DNA has now shown that the speed gene came from these types of British and Irish horses. Formal racing for prizes, particularly of bells made from silver and gold, was established at places like Chester and Carlisle in the sixteenth century, long before the arrival of horses of the Oriental type. From the late seventeenth century onwards, hundreds of horses of the “Oriental” type were imported to Britain and they too contributed to the development of the Thoroughbred. Rulers such as Charles II were keen racegoers and even took part in races themselves. While Newmarket became the centre for racing in England, there were numerous other racecourses throughout the country and racing became a popular sport for all classes.

English Thoroughbreds in equestrianism

From Eclipse and Hyperion to Red Rum and Desert Orchid, the sight of Thoroughbreds demonstrating their power and speed on the green turf of a race course is still an essential part of English culture. Thoroughbreds are one of the main contributors to modern international warmblooded sports horses.
