1. Horses are beautiful, intelligent animals

  • Horses are beautiful, intelligent animals.

For millennia, horses have remained an integral part of human society. In the last few million years, our ancestors have come a long way from their roots in Africa. They’ve crossed continents and oceans to spread across the globe; today, more than seven billion people inhabit Earth. Whether you agree with the way humans have treated their planet or not, we can all agree that they’ve been quite successful at populating it! For thousands of years, horses have been by our side during this conquest of Earth, helping us to move forward—literally and figuratively—both on land and across oceans.

2. Having a horse is good exercise

Finding time to exercise can be difficult and it often falls by the wayside. However, horseback riding is an excellent form of exercise and a great way to stay healthy. It takes a lot of strength, balance and coordination to ride a horse. Riding regularly will help you stay in shape and keep you fit.

3. You can do great things together

A horse can be a best friend, and also a great teacher. While you’re on the journey of bonding with your horse, you can work together to accomplish many things. You could start off with something simple like trail rides, or you could get more challenging and study jumping or dressage with your horse. Your options are endless! In addition to this, having a horse teaches children responsibility as they learn how to care for another creature that relies on them. Horses are also often used in therapy programs to help people overcome problems they may be facing in their life.

4. Horses are very loyal

In times of need, your horse will be by your side. They are very loyal and want nothing more than for you to be happy. If he/she senses that you are upset or sad, he/she will try their best to cheer you up and make you smile. In some cases, it is possible that they could even know what has made you feel this way, as sensitive creatures have been known to pick up on human feelings before! One thing is sure: with a horse in your life, there will never be lonely nights again!

Horses are also great protectors. If they sense any threat towards their owner(s), they won’t hesitate to defend them with everything they’ve got! Whether it’s just one gang of thugs or an entire army of bandits coming at you head on- no problem! Your faithful steed will stomp the ground beneath its feet until those pesky humans fall into an underground trap door (which leads straight into jail).

5. You’ll get to meet new people and make friends that share your passion

Horse people are a special kind, and you’ll feel right at home with them.

You’ll meet people with the same love for horses that you have at the barn or at shows. These people will be more than happy to help you learn how to take care of your horse, and they’ll become your friends in the process. If there’s ever a problem, one of these new friends will come running to lend you a hand. You can bond over your mutual love for horses and spend time together doing something both of you enjoy. Sharing this passion is one of the best parts about having a horse!

The world would be a better place if more people had horses!

While the world would be a better place if more people had horses, it’s not for everyone. Before you take the leap and bring home a horse, it’s important to consider what goes into owning and caring for one of these majestic animals:

  • Domesticated horses have been around for thousands of years. But despite their long history with humans, they’re still a lot of work! They need food, water, shelter, exercise, attention…the list goes on.
  • Horses are also big financial commitments. Besides food and shelter, you’ll also need an insurance plan (in case your horse gets hurt), plus a veterinarian who can help with any medical issues that arise.
  • Horses require plenty of open space—and I mean plenty! Some horses can run at speeds up to 40 miles per hour (64 km/h). You’re going to want a large field or paddock where your horse can run about freely without injuring itself or damaging property. You’ll also need lots of land for grazing when the weather is nice enough to let your horse outside (which won’t be all that often if you live in the northern hemisphere). And because horses are herd animals by nature—they feel safest when there are other hooved buddies around—you might like having two so they can keep each other company while they’re cooped up indoors during wintertime!
