Methods of Identification for Horses

There are several methods of horse identification, some natural, some manmade. Regardless of the methodology, each has its proper application.

Though some may be fallible in specific circumstances, the proper choice is the one that is most useful, convenient and easily recognizable not only for equestrian specialists but also for horse owners.

Long before there were any other methodologies for horse identification, there were the natural characteristics of signalment, the visual markings that distinguish one horse from another.

Though many of these features are not as distinctive as chestnuts or DNA-based information, they do represent genetic phenotypical characteristics.

More distinctive, as are human fingerprints, are the oval plates of horny epithelium called chestnuts.

These callosities growing like the hoof from enlarged papillae of the skin, are found on the inner face of the forearm, above the carpal joint in all species of Equidae, and in the horse, occur near the upper extremity of the inner face of the metatarsus.
