How to test health/quality of a horse.

Hello. I'm wanting to do an experiment on qualities and health of different breeds like testing stamina/endurence. Are there any other things I can test? And how would I test these things? Thanks!

I don't think I understand the question.

Health and stamina are two different things.

For instance, a Friesian can be in excellent health, but isn't bred for the stamina of endurance riding. An Arabian can be in excellent health, but isn't bred for the stamina of pulling heavy wagons.

You have to factor in more than just health. Breed types and what they're bred for play a very large part in stamina and endurance.

I know they are two different things. I am wanting to test both. It is mainly to test breeds of horses origionating from the same "older" breed.
