When you look at the animals that are most connected with people throughout our history, one of the first that has to come to mind is horses. They have been the ones that have helped us explore from the Middle East all the way to Canada and now they are the only animals that helps people win Olympic medals. They are one of the most remarkable creatures that the world has ever seen and we want to dedicate this entire site to the wonder of horses.

The Minnesota Horse Council was created in 1935 and is a not-for-profit organization that is helping people who love horses to come together. There are many different places and events where you might be able to see or experience playing or working with a horse. Some people compete in worldwide events, like horse racing, jumping, or dressage. Others simply like to take their horse out at the end of the day for a ride through the country.

Humans first domesticated horses in 4400 BC but it took one thousand years before they were being used throughout the world for travel and to help with daily work. There are now over three hundred breeds of horses and they are broken up into three different categories. Hot bloods are known for speed and endurance and cold bloods are the workhorses. Warm bloods are those in between that come from one hot blood and one warm blood.

When you talk about horses you can't help but discuss their interactions with humans. But that is not all that we want to talk about here. We want to talk about their own history and how they have developed over centuries. We want to tell you about how they move and their physiology. If you want to learn about the differences between a foal and a yearling or how to distinguish between breeds, this is where you will find your answer.

Those that own horses are usually those that need to know all about them. Not only are they interested in the different breeds but also how to care for a horse on a day-to-day basis. We can provide you with all of the information you might need to know when it comes to taking care of any kind of horse. We will help you choose the right stable or vet for your horse, what you will need to equip them with to ride, and can even help you decide what kind of rider you want to be.

There are so many different things to learn when it comes to horses and we want to open your eyes to as much of it as possible. So, stay tuned and visit our site often. We will always have something new to learn and see for those who love these majestic and beautiful animals.
