Welcome to the Year of the Horse

dumpster rental chinese new yearWe just rented a dumpster to our friends at Bill Pickett Riding Academy in Philadelphia, PA. We were really taken with the idea of an equestrian program in the city — and just in time. Today marks the Chinese New Year, and the beginning of the year of the horse. Specifically, this is the year of the wooden horse. But, just what does that mean?

We’ve done some research and will do our best to prepare you for what’s to come in the year of the horse. First, be advised that 2014 will be a high energy year. This could mean speedy success or some unexpected thrills. Horses are very brave animals with high spirits, but they also can be cautious at times. Translation: Good luck will come in abundance this year, but you must act quickly and intelligently to take advantage. Don’t make rash decisions unless you feel certain. Also, horses have always been a reliable source of transportation so this could be a great year for travel.

Those born in horse years (2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966, 1954, 1942, 1930, 1918, 1906) are expected to have an especially fruitful year. People born in these years tend to be cheerful and clever. They enjoy being the center of attention and often excel in the workplace. They are known for being somewhat stubborn, as well. This is one of the best years for those born in horse years to aim for wealth, marriage, children, or other opportunities.
