What is a "string" of horses?

A string of horses is a group of horses owned by the same person or organization and used for the same purpose. So, you can have a string of pack mules, a string of lesson horses, a string of racehorses, etc.

It's an American term - in Britain we tend to talk about having a stable of horses, which makes a certain amount more sense.
