The definition of horse breeding is the reproduction of horses by pairing specific purebred breeds of horses together by means of purposed human intervention. Planned matings can produce specific characteristics and traits and exclude negative characteristics at the same time. To breed horses is a very expensive process where proper planning and knowledge needs to be maintained to achieve the set out results. A purebred horse usually has more value than a horse with a mixed breed and some horse disciplines require a specific breed so an in-depth knowledge of bloodlines needs to be considered as some bloodlines cross better with others.
