The horse is not a predatory animal, that is, it does not prey on other animals, neither does it eat meat. Instead, it feeds on grass and other similar vegetation.

The horse has been used extensively throughout the centuries, perhaps since creation, as a beast of burden to carry load, pull carts, etc.

In ancient warfare, especially during the American Revolutionary War, the horse has been used heavily as an animal of war to transport soldiers and run them into enemy lines.

Aside from that, the horse has been used as a sport animal in “horse races” up to this present day.

The horse is also reared as a pet among families who take light rides around on its back.
