Your horse’s face and leg markings are unique to them. Each one is slightly different. If you’d like a helpful way to distinguish each horse you meet, then learn their markings. Some are really rare and striking, while others are more common. It can be fun to practice identifying them at your barn.

Many horses have white facial hairs that set them apart, though some have none at all. Smaller ones like a star and snip can be combined with others like a stripe. It’s really interesting to see all the different types!

A lot of horses also have markings on their legs. They can be on one or all four and of varying size.
