The horse is New Jersey's state animal.


In New York City, it is illegal to open or close an umbrella in the presence of a horse.

Tennessee prohibits riders from lassoing fish.


A British law states that an Englishman must not sell a horse to a Scotsman.
 

Horses are required to wear hats in hot weather in Rasario, Argentina.


A fine of $25 can be levied for flirting. This old law specifically prohibits men from turning around on any city street and looking "at a woman in that way." A second conviction for a crime of this magnitude calls for the violating male to be forced to wear a "pair of horse-blinders" wherever and whenever he goes outside for a stroll.


In Guernee, Illinois, it is illegal for women weighing more than 200 pounds to ride horses in shorts.


In Kentucky, it is illegal for a woman to appear in a bathing suit on a highway unless she is: escorted by at least two police officers; armed with a club; or lighter than 90 pounds or heavier than 200 pounds. The ordinance also specifically exempts female horses from such restrictions.


In London, England, law required taxi drivers to carry a bale of hay on top of their caps to feed their horses. The law was in force until 1976.


In Arizona, it is illegal for cowboys to walk through a hotel lobby wearing their spurs.


In Raton, New Mexico, it is illegal for a woman to ride horseback down a public street with a kimono on.
 

In South Carolina, it is legal for adult males to discharge firearms when approaching an intersection in a non-horse vehicle to warn oncoming horse traffic.


A misworded ordinance in Wolf Point, Montana: "No horse shall be allowed in public without its owner wearing a halter."


In South Carolina, no horses are allowed into Fountain Inn unless they are wearing pants.


In Omega, New Mexico, every woman must "be found to be wearing a corset" when riding a horse in public! A doctor is required to inspect each woman to make sure that she is complying with the law.


Pennsylvania law states: ``Any motorist who sights a team of horses coming toward him must pull well off the road, cover his car with a blanket or canvas that blends with the countryside, and let the horses pass. If the horses appear skittish, the motorist must take his car apart, piece by piece, and hide it under the nearest bushes.'


In Hartsville, Illinois, you can be arrested for riding an ugly horse.


In the state of Queensland, Australia, it is still constitutional law that all pubs (hotel/bar) must have a railing outside for patrons to tie up their horse.


Pattonsburg, Missouri, Revised Ordinances, 1884: "No person shall hallo, shout, bawl, scream, use profane language, dance, sing, whoop, quarrel, or make any unusual noise or sound in such manner as to disturb a horse."


Abilene, Kansas, City Ordinance 349 declares: "Any person who shall in the city of Abilene shoot at a horse with any concealed or unconcealed bean snapper or like article, shall upon conviction, be fined."
