Horses were honored and loved in ancient China, with emperors enthusiastically breeding and raising them in the imperial stables, especially in the Tang Dynasty (AD 618-905) when the game of polo was invented. Emperors would typically award a white horse to those who had achieved the highest honor. Even now the expression "white horse" is used to describe a good-looking and pure scholar. Horses were also a favorite subject for artists.
The horse is a vivacious, clever, and swift animal. People born in this year are decisive and bold in their actions, bursting with energy and confidence. They are offensive players and born leaders with strength, sparkling wits, and quick minds, ambitiously advancing in business, finances, and romance. They are brave and straightforward in communicating their likes and desires. Honorable and social, they dearly love cultural pursuits and enjoy all sorts of stimulating conversation. Beware of debating a horse, for you will usually lose!
Horses typically love to travel and can not sit still. Though highly skilled with their hands, their high-spiritedness makes it hard for them to finish projects. Freedom and independence are key to their well-being. If reined in, they will likely break free and rapid galloping away.
