Horse Riddles

Our series of animal riddles for kids is continuing today with ten of them that all have ‘horse’ as their answer.

This also means that these can be used with many of our other riddle themes such as sports, transport, farm and nature.

The first eight of these rhyme – with the fourth one, the word horse completes the rhyme. There’s also a one line riddle and a set of What Am I? questions.

With that final idea, read the first line to your children and ask them to guess the answer. The clue about four legs might mean they guess a table, chair or any number of different animals.

If they don’t guess that it’s a horse, read them the clue on the second line and have them guess again. Continue doing this until they either guess correctly that you’re describing a horse or they run out of clues.

Take its reins and then hooves would pound
