It is important for you to know basic points of the horse if you are going to own or work with horses. These points are the names for the different parts of the horse. You use them to describe movement, illness, composition and more. Below are some photos of the points of the horse. I have included a couple of different horses just to show that the names are the same, no matter what the horse looks like. I have also included a photo of the underneath of the hoof (foot) with the names of it’s different areas marked out.
See how quickly you can memorize these points.
