The "Warm Blood Horse"

The warm-blooded horse is the most common type of horse. This type of horse is neither as small and lightly muscled as the hot-blooded horse, or tall and heavily muscled as the cold-blooded horse. Rather, they are somewhere in between.

The term warm-blooded horse does not describe a breed, but rather a classification. There are many breeds that are classified as warm-bloods, many of which are popularly used as competition horses. Since the average warm-blooded horse is nearly as tall as its cold-blooded cousins, they are usually big enough to satisfy most modern riders’ needs. However, they have the lightly muscled build of a hot-blooded horse, which means that they have more energy and stamina than cold-blooded horses do.
