Built for stamina and speed, horses have also been used to pull chariots, power engines, grind wheat, and spin cotton. 

Eyewitness Horse also provides information about different horse breeds, colors, shapes, and sizes. You will also follow this animal's journey into the world of sports and find out what place they hold in ancient myths and legends.
