Horse Characteristics

The horse is independent and popular, fun, cheerful and energetic. They don't like to sit still, and they don't like to be tied down! If needs be, a horse will put his head down and keep on going with a task until it is finished. The flip side of this determined spirit is that a horse can also be stubborn!
