Ever since a young age, I have been around horses; however, most of my time is spent with my paint horse. My paint horse is a bi-colored paint while another paint horse I am frequently around is a tri-colored paint. These differences caused me to wonder at a young age if there were different types of paints. I have since learned that there are three types but did not know the particular names. To further my knowledge on this specific subject, I gathered information regarding the breed of paint horses using sources such as books, journal entries, and websites. A pdf format of a book found on Google, American Paint Horse Association’s Guide to Coat Color Genetics, was full of information about each of the types, the genetics, breeding tips, coat colors and descriptions, and the Overo Lethal White Syndrome.

In chapters nine and ten, the author Gary Thomas does not hold back in his presentation for the need of physical fitness. The information and arguments he provides in these two chapters have applicable truths in them for the reader. I admit that as I read his material I had mixed thoughts, and I agree with the author on several points. Like the author I believe that physical fitness is vital for healthy living. However, there were moments I found dissonance with the author. This is mainly due to his presentation and how he utilized outsourced material to support his argument.
At a horse race, all eyes are on the leading horse. Betting race fans watch the fastest horses closely so they can place money on who they believe will be a champion. What some viewers do not pay attention to are the horses who leave the box late and gallop behind the pack to the finish line. Because there is not a lot of excitement about these slower horses, some people do not pay attention to what happens to them behind the scenes. After one or two low placings, they prove that they are not fast enough for the track. Without given chances in other disciplines, many of these still young and healthy horses are auctioned off (U.S. Newswire). These horses make up the majority of the slaughtered equines in North America. In 2006, 140,000 unwanted American horses
“Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyways.” – John Wayne. Riding horses can always be a terrifying or calm moment, depending on the horse you ride. I have had many scary moments riding horse, one being breaking my wrist. There is nothing more enjoyable than rising early, saddling your horse, and watching the sun rise. Did you know horses have one of the best memories and are the most perceptive domestic animals? This is why people would call me a nerd in horses because I can name off facts. (thesis statement)

Prioritizing, viewing a wide variety of injuries, and differing work fields are just a few of the benefits that you get when you are a trainer.
Muscular strength, power, and speed are defined as the three vital skills needed by taekwondo players in their sport, as stated in Physical Training in Taekwondo: Generic and Specific Training (Haddad, 2014). Muscular strength is defined by Hall, E. (2003) as the ability of a muscle group to develop maximal contractile force against a resistance in a single contraction. Greenfield, B. (2016) suggests that power and speed goes hand-in-hand with strength. Greenfield (2016) defined power as the ability to generate high amounts of force over a period over a short time, while defining speed as the ability to travel a set distance over as short a period of time as possible. These vital skills allows a taekwondo player’s muscular units in the lower extremeties the ability to kick, jump, and maintain stances. According to this study, their hasn’t been a consensus about the different investigative studies done on the effect of muscular strength training in taekwondo, and only one study investigated speed and agility in low frequency taekwondo training measured through 50m shuttle run test (Kim, 2011). The study suggests that the findings are the result of low number of training sessions or non-sufficient stimulus eliciting speed and
