    The problem with horses is that they require too much space for be kept in good conditions. Also as any animal, it gets tired, ill and disobedient.
    I love horses but as I see the conditions of life in general, our modern cities and peoples aren't prepared for horses. It would be necessary to destroy all the pavement because in summer it burns their hooves, also those frickers consoome a lot of grass and water.
    Also the best race is the chilean "corralero".

    Water buffalos are superior to horses in every way possible, why not just use them instead?

      *Except for being slower and having less endurance

      You can milk horses too. Mongols did it on the march.

    Interestingly enough, the whole world would be better off if we went back to horses as our primary means of transportation.

    Replaced by machines that work harder and don't need breaks. Most of humanity will experience the same fate later this century, and get the same treatment.

        well the problem with horses is that they need a relatively large amount of land compared to what is given for suburban household, horses are dangerous, they shit everywhere, you also have to spend a lot of time on them which most people do not have or are willing to do

          That's why horse-rentals and self-driving horse carriages are the future.

        nope, good luck hauling hundreds of kg of cargo uphill with a horse
        >as long as you got 2 horses you can have an infinite supply of horses
        you've never been to a farm and knows nothing about horses
        >average lifespan 30 years
        horses die by a light tap in the head, and get killed for simple injuries because treating them and allowing recover is way too much work
