We Love Our Horses

In honor of National I Love Horses Day last week, we asked to see our readers loving on their horses. Here are 18 photos showing them doing just that!

July 15th was National I Love Horses Day. We asked our Facebook and Instagram followers to show us photos of them loving on their horses in honor of the day. Here are some of the submissions we received — boy does the Horse Nation herd love its horses! And it warms our hearts to see how much everyone loves their four-legged pals!
