Horse ID Using Natural Markings

The most obvious way to identify your horse is by horse ID using natural markings.

Using natural markings to identify your horse

Horse ID using natural markings is the simplest, least costly way to identify your animal. Obviously as you get to know your horse and build your relationship with him, you start to memorize his markings. This can be very helpful if you get in a situation where your horse gets intermingled with other horses that are similar in coloring.

Many horses are solid color, but most horses have some kind of feature that allows for horse ID using natural markings. For example, many horses have markings on their forehead. This type of marking is usually called a star. Horses also have markings on their snout. These markings are called snipes and often meld into the star portion of the horse's markings giving the horse very long lean markings.
