  • The Morgan horse takes its name from a man called Justin Morgan. His stallion, Figure, was not very big, but was so strong that in driving competitions he could even beat coldbloods. Even in his old age, he still won races. That made him a very popular stud horse – enough so that he sired an entire breed by himself.

  • Sofia didn’t choose the Andalusian mare Blossom. It was the other way round! The horse gently nudged Sofia with her nose while she was daydreaming, causing her to fall to the ground three times in a row. Sofia loves Blossom for the way that she brings her back to the here and now, and spends every spare minute with the mare.

  • Quarter horses are reliable animals with strong nerves. That’s why they’re especially popular with cowboys. Quarter horses also have what’s known as cow sense, which helps their riders when driving herds of cattle. Quarter horses respond to the tiniest of leg cues and if they’re trained well can even be ridden without reins.

  • How can you tell apart a Paint horse mare and a pinto mare? It’s easy to mix them up, because they both have patched coats. Essentially, the only way to tell for sure is to consult the studbook: while pintos are only a colour breed, Paint horses are an official breed in their own right.

  • Holsteiners are very talented jumpers. Just a few days after birth, the foals will jump joyfully and energetically over small obstacles. However, jumping training only begins in earnest at the age of two to three. By the age of five to six, the horses’ muscles are sufficiently developed for them to carry a rider while jumping too.
