The power of a horse is expected to be 1 HP by definition. 1 HP equals 736 W=736 J/s. If we use a horse ( and pulley and rope) to pull up a load of 75 kg, it can pull it about 1 meter per minute! A strong horse I think.

What? Where is the "former rural world"? Physics Forums is visited by people from all over the world, and the laws of physics are the same for everyone.
