why are horses as a mode of transportation not more common? They are literally the perfect commuter vehicles.

Cheaper than a motorcycle and most e-bikes, has a big heart to love you with, and fun.

        That's the main reason why first trolleys and later cars replaced horses. Machines might been expensive, dangerous, stinky and loud but they also didn't leave piles of shit everywhere. Back in the day cities had entire industries dedicated to removing all that crap.

    Horses are pretty intelligent animals. They need plenty of space, tons of stimulation and most importantly, friends. You don't "just" get a horse.

    Not worth the hassle for personal use, but I see potential for community work. In smaller communities a horse and a cart could be used as a greener school bus for example, why not? Kids would love going to school by horse

    Yeah but also the only city I have personally been in that still has hitching posts for a horse is Cheyenne Wyoming.
    Where I live it's hard enough finding a place to lock up a 20 year old Walmart mountain bike for a few hours much less trying to keep a horse somewhere for a while.

        So you ride your horse to work and valet it to the stables?

        This. Self care boarding is anywhere from 200-500 a month, and then adding hay at 350 a ton plus other services really adds up. Horses, to keep in good condition, are expensive.

    Feeding a horse is more expensive than gas on average. Housing a horse takes money and labor because you have to clean up after them. Also, good luck with vet bills, for horses they can easily cost as much as car repairs, if not more. Plus, horses need special consideration as far as winter and potential pests go.

    Horses are great, but it isnt some magic bullet to replace cars. You'd be far better off buying an absolute shitbox for 1k and grinding it into the ground, selling it for scrap and repeating. True, a car can't love you, but you also wont cry when your car dies. Or you shouldn't at least.

      I live in the middle of nowhere and have ridden my horse up to our town on occasion. It’s fun but not as practical as it seems.

        A wild animal is much less likely to try approaching you if you have a horse with you. They're big animals that are very capable of taking care of themselves.

          Snakes don't approach you, but if your horse steps on a venomous one by accident and it manages to land a bite in self-defense it can get really bad even despite their size
