National Horse Day, also known as National Horse Day, is observed on December 13. This day is intended to commemorate all of how horses have traditionally contributed to society, both economically and culturally, in the United States. Horses have been inextricably linked to American history since the country's founding, and have played an important role in the advancement of society, from providing transportation to providing support in battle and hunting, clearing fields and forests to grow crops, and assisting with livestock shepherding in ranches.
The Senate enacted Resolution 452 in 2004, making December 13 an official government commemoration, establishing National Day of the Horse.
Spanish explorers transported horses to North America, where they later expanded throughout the Great Plains. Some argue that the domesticated horse, Equus caballus, is a native species of America.
Horses have played a significant role in the economic progress of the United States since their arrival. Horses are predicted to contribute $9.2 billion to the national economy. The horse is also deeply ingrained in American culture and heritage; it is associated with the concept of the American cowboy, and rodeos remain a popular event in several regions of the country.
While some people only think of horses in a recreational sense, they are not only necessary for farm work and transportation in rural regions, but they are also excellent therapy animals for persons suffering from anxiety and PTSD. They have been a companion to mankind for generations, and have assisted everyone from farmers to riders to fighters.
How to Celebrate National Horse Day?
Everyone can celebrate National Horse Day, whether you are an equestrian who enjoys riding, an equine specialist and enthusiast, or simply someone who enjoys horses.
If you own a horse, use it today to spend time with it and build your attachment. Go for a long trail ride, maybe even a hack. If your horse enjoys it, give it a thorough grooming. You may even treat it to a new halter or bridle browband.
Invite folks who don't regularly get to engage with horses to your horse stables. Despite being such an important aspect of American culture, they are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain. Give someone a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
Do you enjoy horses but do not own one? Purchase some horseback riding lessons for yourself; you'll get to spend time with horses while learning a new skill! Consider donating your time to horse-related organizations such as rescues and therapeutic riding schools. You could also send money to horse-related charities. Treat yourself to a horse-themed day by watching a horse movie like "Seabiscuit" or "Secretariat."
