Horses have long been an important aspect of human transportation systems around the world, allowing people to move for a variety of reasons including economic and military ones. Horses were used for recreational and sporting activities, as well as to do a variety of chores. Horses still have the same role, especially in rural areas around the world. The bulk of horses in today’s wealthier western nations, on the other hand, are kept for recreational purposes. Horse culture arose as a result of society’s increased reliance on horses to meet its socio-cultural and economic needs. The gradual development in people’s interest in utilizing horses and other equines for leisure and refreshment in the 1950s and 1960s contributed to the emergence of equestrian or horse tourism, which began in Europe, North America, and Australia. Since the early 1970s, the equine sector in general, and horse tourism in particular, has been quickly developing in industrialized western countries. The employment turnover, the number of enterprises, the number of people employed, and the number of people engaged in the sector all represent the industry’s social and economic importance.
