Heavy Horses is the eleventh studio album by British progressive rock band Jethro Tull, released on 10 April 1978.
It is considered the second album in a trilogy of folk-rock albums by Jethro Tull, the first and third being Songs from the Wood (1977) and Stormwatch (1979), although folk music's influence is evident on a great number of Jethro Tull releases.
The album abandons much of the folk lyrical content typical of the previous studio album in exchange for a more realist perspective on the changing world — the album is dedicated to the "indigenous working ponies and horses of Great Britain". Likewise, the band sound is harder and tighter.
An expanded, five-disc version was released on 2 March 2018.
