    THE YEAR OF THE HORSE

    People born in the year of the horse have a pleasant, amiable, easygoing disposition. They are good-humored and extremely animated, active and energetic. Horse people are very healthy, most likely because they hold a positive attitude towards life. The sign of horse stands for leadership, management, and decision-making.
