What horse breed is the largest?

Shire
Oldenburg
Holsteiner
Friesian
Shires have held the world records for both largest overall horse and tallest horse at various times. The breed was valued during the Middle Ages, but the in­creas­ing role of gun­pow­der brought an end to the use of heavy horses in battle. Oliver Cromwell's cavalry favored lighter, faster mounts and the big horses began to be used for draught work instead.
