Who was the Biggest Horse in the World?

Sampson was the biggest ever horse - a magnificent Shire who stood at an incredible 21.5 hands tall.

He lived in the early 19th century and was owned by Captain Samuel Bennett of London. He was so impressive that he was given the name 'Mammoth' by the public in recognition of his size. Even in today's world of horse breeding, Sampson's size is rarely matched.

His prodigious size was said to be due to the large amount of oats and barley he ate, as well as his natural strength and athleticism. Sampson's fame spread far and wide, with people travelling from miles around to witness the incredible size of this majestic horse. He was even used to pull carriages to show off his strength and size.

Unfortunately, Sampson died from colic at the age of 20 and was buried in a very large grave, surrounded by a monument that still stands today. Sampson set a new record for the biggest horse ever and will go down in history as one of the most impressive animals of all time.

It is worth noting that while there have been many horses that were larger than most, they were not necessarily the healthiest or strongest horses. In fact, horses that are too large or heavy can be prone to health problems and may not be as agile or athletic as smaller horses. It is important for horses to be of a healthy size and weight for their breed and age in order to maintain their overall well-being.
