2014 Prediction for the Horse

The Horse will be able to get a great deal done in 2014 and should find that this can be a very memorable year; my one bit of advice for the Horse in 2014 would be to make sure that you do not take others good nature for granted this year as there is a risk of problems caused by people helping the Horse and getting it thrown back in their face. - see more here 

Characteristics of a Horse

People born in the year of the horse have ingenious communicating techniques and in their community they always want to be in the limelight. They are clever, kind to others, and like to join in a venture career. Although they sometimes talk too much, they are cheerful, perceptive, talented, earthy but stubborn. They like entertainment and large crowds. They are popular among friends, active at work and refuse to be reconciled to failure, although their endeavor cannot last indefinitely. 

Look up your birth year
