Chinese Horse Child

Horse children are the most willful in the Chinese Zodiac. They know how to keep their emotions in control and how to manage other people’s feelings. Because they’re also very proud, it’s very unlikely for them to ever show their weaknesses, to ask for help or to pay attention to the advice they’re being given.

Seeing as they’re balanced most of the time, when they do have a rare angry outburst, it means something is happening with their inner feelings and they probably fear something. Because they’re overly independent, their parents should always keep an eye on them.

Most of the time coming across as self-confident and courageous, they still have some fears that they never talk about which can put them in bad moods.

Their parents should tell them many times that failure is an experience too because if this doesn’t happen, the little ones’ behavior starts to become destructive.
