Horses are some of the most majestic animals on the planet. The way their coat shines, the way their mane flows as they run. The way no two horses are exactly the same.

If any of you have ever ridden a horse, you know just how special it is to do so. Of course, it may hurt to sit for a few days, but boy is it worth the ride.

Riding a horse takes you away from reality and brings about a peacefulness that is memorable for all of our days.

Learning about horses can give a child a glimpse into this beauty.

Horses aren’t just amazingly beautiful, they also are interesting animals to study as well.

Here are some interesting facts that your homeschool kids are sure to enjoy:

-The last wild horse species on earth are named the Przewalski’s Horses. These horses live in China and Mongolia. They are highly endangered.

-Horses are called many names depending on their age, characteristics, and gender. For example:

Male horses are called stallions.

Female horses are called mares.


If the horses are younger than four years old, then the male is called a colt and the female horse is called a filly.

-There are four basic speeds that identify how a horse moves – walk, trot, canter, and gallop.

-It is said that humans first tamed horses around 4000 BC.

-Horses can sleep both laying down and standing up.

-I really wish there were more horses where I live  (Tonga), although our people have been known to eat them on rare occasions. Don’t judge me, I never and will never eat horse meat. After studying horses, that really bothers me.

-There are an estimated 60 million horses in the world today.

-Horses have amazing vision. Their eyes are bigger than any other land mammal. Oh, and since, their eyes are on the side of their head, they can also see 360 degrees.

-There are over 300 horse breeds in the world.

-This one is loco. Horses have actually been cloned before. In 2003, a horse was cloned for the first time in Italy.

The lockdowns have really helped people realize something they want to do once life is back to normal – hopefully and prayerfully.

We can’t wait to visit New York when the restrictions are better. I definitely will be taking my kids on a New York horse and carriage ride!
