Anyone that owns a horse or spends a long time around them will have definitely noticed that they have very strong personalities and are all very, very different. Some may be cheeky, some may be downright naughty but they seem to take on different personas in our mind.
You’ll getter better odds on this than Cheltenham odds because we all like to give them alter egos in our mind and think about what they would actually be like if they were human and could talk to us and share who they really are.
Your horse might be a cheeky young colt, who doesn’t listen to instruction and is a very naughty boy or it might be an old stallion that’s given up its wild ways and wants a quieter calmer life now. It could be a young filly determined to succeed full of manners and grace or an older mare that is wild, carefree and exciting. Only you will know which one of these is most like your horse.
We decided to recreate some of our favourite horse personalities for you to see which one best suits your horse!
The Naughty Colt
The cheeky young colt thinks he knows everything and ignores every instruction. You’ve tried and tried to train him but he’s not interested in the slightest.
The Good Boy
This young horse does exactly what’s asked of him every time and is a pleasure to train, if not a little bit boring.
The Refined Lady
This mare is real refined lady. Everything she does oozes grace and you just know that if she spoke it would be in the Queens English.
The Elder Statesman
Much like the refined lady this old stallion oozes class whenever you interact with him. He’s cool, calm and collected and likely has impeccable manners.
The Old Chap
This is the grandad of the stables and he’s still got so much love to give. He’s gentle and such a lovely horse. He still loves an apple or 7.
