10 States That Produce The Most Horses in America

Whoa Nelly, it’s time to check out the states that produce the most horses in America

I almost went horseback riding this summer.  I had been camping upstate and there was actually a horse farm next to the campsite. They looked so cool. I pictured myself atop a gentle steed. I always look fantastic in my imagination–what can I say? It’s a gift. Unfortunately, by the time we got there they were closed for the day. The horses had already taken people on the mile-long trot through the woods dozens of times that day.

Actually, I HAVE owned a horse. Or a horse-like object. It was a stick with a horse’s head on it. It matches perfectly with my plastic red cowboy hat. I also had a rocking horse that was on springs! Is that even legal?  It seems like something Xzhibit would’ve pimped out.  I remember “galloping” on it in the living room of our apartment, even though I was pretty young I was still somewhat concerned with the fact that it seems as though I would be catapulting out the window at any moment.

Horses, organic, plastic or otherwise, are beautiful creatures. My wife is obsessed with the way their hooves strike the ground when they run. You might think I am exaggerating but she just watched 5 YouTube videos about it yesterday. She started with camels, but when she got to horses, she found the sweet spot. To each his own when it comes to nature videos.

As you can probably tell from the title, the methodology for states that produce the most horses in America is going to be quite straight forward. We take the number of horses of each state and the ones that have a higher number will be ranked higher and vice-versa. What do you think, are some of the Largest Cattle Producing States in the US also part of this list? We’ll see in a minute.

Of course, we had to delve deep into the database of several websites. We sought help from websites like HorseCouncil, HumaneSociety and a report published by horsecouncil, which you can find here. Hopefully, you will find our article quite entertaining. Especially if you love horses, then we can guarantee your enjoyment.
