A working colt is a horse with the necessary physical traits and temperament to be trained as more than a riding horse (IE: cattle, endurance, jumping, or steeplechase).
A draft horse suffers half the normal encumbrance penalties.
A cattle horse is not afraid of livestock and knows how to perform a variety of maneuvers including rollback, spin, hindquarter stop, boxing, fence turning, and circling.
An endurance horse loses fatigue at half the normal rate. It is taught to pace itself for runs up to 100 miles.
A hunting horse has been taught to leap over fences and obstacles without breaking pace, and to perform a small number of useful maneuvers.
A steeplechase horse is taught to jump and maneuver around difficult obstacles at maximum speed.
A war horse is taught not to panic, to ignore loud sounds and sudden movements, and to defend itself. It is more resistant to damage than smaller horses. It suffers half the normal encumbrance penalties.

An elderly horse regains endurance at half the normal rate, has only a handful of years left to live, has poorer senses, is less likely to spook or rebel, and costs 50% less.
A horse with a good temperament, less likely to spook or rebel, costs 10% more.
A seasoned horse has been given extra training. It can handle long trips, wilderness travel, campfires, wild animal encounters, mounted combat, and other basic hazards of adventuring. It costs 20% more.
A trained horse has all of the skills of a seasoned horse, plus loyalty to its rider and a number of special commands, such as pulling, falling silent, or lying down on command. It costs 50% more.
A horse with an uncommon color costs 10% more, while a particularly beautiful animal costs 20% more. A colt from a famous bloodline costs 25% more.
One week of professional rider training costs 250 cp, or 40 per session. One month of training the horse costs 600 cp.

Cheap items have shoddy workmanship and will eventually fail during normal use. They are easily recognized as being poor quality. Cheap items cost 40% of the listed price.
Fine goods are made with high quality materials. They are twice as resistant to wear and tear, and come in a wider selection of styles. Fine goods cost 3 times the listed price.
Very fine items were made by master craftsmen. They almost never wear out, and may add a +1 modifier to related skill rolls. These items always have a distinctive design and may cause a reaction modifier. Very fine goods cost 5 times the listed price.

Race horses have a max MV 18 (36.8 mph), saddle and cavalry horses have a max MV 16 (32.7 mph), heavy warhorses have a max MV 14 (28.6 mph), ponies have a max MV of 13 (26.6 mph), draft horses have a max MV 12 (24.5 mph), mules have a max MV of 10 (20.4 mph), donkeys have a max MV of 8 (16.3 mph), and camels have a max MV of 7 (14.3 mph). A typical riding horse walks at 4 mph, trots at 8 mph, canters at 15 mph and gallups at 30 mph. Cavalry horses can sprint up to 50 mph over short distances. Race horses can sustain top speed for approximately one mile. A buggy or wagon can be pulled at speeds up to 30 mph, but must slow down on turns.
A well-trained hunting horse can regularly jump 6' high fences, obstacles that are 5' tall with a 5' spread, and water measuring 13' across.

Horses and mules suffer movement and endurance penalties if carrying more than 20% of their body weight. Using a wagon or other wheeled vehicle, horses and mules can pull up to 6 times their own weight. Mules have more endurance, need less food, have thicker skin, are more weather resistant, and are more intelligent than horses.

Dogs have a MV of 4 to 12. Racing dogs can reach a top speed of 43.5 mph within 30 m, and sustain it for 500 m. Rottweilers can sprint at 22 mph, Shepherds at 30mph, and Dobermans at 35 mph. Sled dogs can pull for 6 hours at 10-12 mph, daily for up to two weeks.

Draft horses weigh 1500 to 2000 lbs. They are used for pulling cargo wagons and heavy loads. The average mule wighs between 800 and 1000 lbs.
