Entry from British & World English dictionary
A horse put in traces to pull a vehicle.
- The trace-horses pressed close to the shafts and sticking in the snow kicked it up, hard and glittering as sugar.
- Smiting heavily, he apportioned one doom for this one, another for that one, mighty Ares, our trace-horse on the right.
- Sometimes his children, robed in white, stood with him in the chariot, or rode the trace-horses.
