Horses Today

Many jobs still depend on horses a lot. For example, cattle ranches could not operate without cowboys and cowgirls on horseback to round up cattle. Search and rescue teams need horses to reach places people cannot reach safely on foot. Mounted police officers are important to direct and protect large crowds of people. Horses are also a part of many sports and competitions such fine dance routines in reining and dressage; team sports such as ranch sorting and polo; and even speed events like barrel racing and thoroughbred track racing!

Horses don’t use gas. Every time people use a horse instead of a car, they are helping the environment.
