Horse Humor

Horse Humor articles from Horse Illustrated share the fun side of horse ownership, the humorous side, and the lighthearted side. Behind all of the work, dedication, and commitment that it takes to own a horse is a lot of laughs, fun times, and memories. Without looking at the humorous side, it can just feel like endless chores. But not for those who are passionate about horses and know not to take it too seriously. Read stories from veterinarians, amateur riders, competitors, youth, and others who have found horse humor in events and happenings and just everyday living with their horses and ponies.
