Horses should beware of the Rat, as any relationship with this sign is said to be extremely trying for the horse.

However, horses get along great with Tigers and Dogs. The Rat ( 鼠 ) was welcomed in ancient times as a protector and bringer of material prosperity. ...

Horse - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography (4879 words)
Horses and other equids are odd-toed ungulates of the order Perissodactyla, a relatively ancient group of browsing and grazing animals that first arose less than 10 million years after the dinosaurs became extinct.
Horse evolution was characterized by a reduction in the number of toes, from five per foot, to three per foot, to only one toe per foot (late Miocene 5.3 million years ago); essentially, the animal was standing on tiptoe.
Horses can be mounted bareback with a vault from the ground or by grabbing the mane to provide leverage as a rider makes a small jump and scrambles up onto the horse's back (an awkward but popular method used by children).
