The Horse is one of the 12 Animal signs of the Chinese Zodiac. In the foreground is the Chinese character for the Horse.
Those born in the Year of the Horse are said to be both physically and mentally active cheerful and friendly. If you were born in 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966, 1954, 1942, 1930, or 1918 you are probably a Horse, but double-check the exact dates if your birthday is in mid-January to mid-February because the Lunar New Year is on a different date each year. Wikipedia’s Chinese Zodiac page is a good starting point for more information about all of the signs and their meanings.
