Suffolk Punch, a heavy draft horse from England, always chestnut in color. The breed almost died out in the mid to late 20th century as work horses were not required, but rare breed registries are working to increase their very low numbers.
Cleveland Bay horse. Originating in the 17th century, it is the oldest established horse breed in England. Always bay, it is well-muscled and excels in hunting, jumping, and harness. Once extremely popular, it fell out of fashion and almost disappeared until Queen Elizabeth II acquired a stallion in the 1960s and started promoting the breed. Its numbers are still critical.
