Horse Facts

Grazing...

In the wild horses would naturally spend 16-18 hours a day grazing and would even travel upto 20 miles per day to find enough food!

Long in the tooth...

Horses' teeth are often used to estimate the animal's age, hence the saying 'long in the tooth'.

Bit in the teeth?

Contrary to popular belief, the bit of a bridle is not held between the horse's teeth, but instead lies in the "interdental space." This space lacks teeth, providing an ideal area for the bit to rest without forcing the jaws open.
