Who Is the Horse Compatible With?

The Horse is one of the most charismatic signs in the Chinese Zodiac. They’re the farthest thing from boring, but they tend to get bored quickly. So, how well do they gel with some of the other signs?

See a full list of additional Resources at the end of the article.

The Horse is compatible with the Goat, Tiger, and Dog. Their passionate nature pleases the goat, and the Tiger is patient enough to put up with their dramatic tendencies, whereas their unwavering honesty is the Dog’s favorite quality.

Horses are passionate lovers. They’re optimistic, bright, and funny, so a dull partner is the last thing they’d feel a connection with. Keep reading to learn how well they pair up with the others.

Tiger Compatibility

Tigers are known for their fun-loving nature, which obviously wouldn’t sit too well with a dull partner.

Luckily, the Horse is the exact opposite of that. Horses can be one of the wildest zodiac signs when it comes to having fun. Both these signs are generally passionate about sports and have a positive attitude toward trying new things.

With a mutual love of freedom and enjoying life as it comes to them, these two signs can effortlessly build a lifetime bond.

The Tiger will probably be the leader in this relationship, and the Horse would be happy to trust their partner’s decisions. However, he won’t be a yes-man, because whenever there’s a disagreement, a Horse will always voice it and have a positive discussion about it.

Dog Compatibility

The Dog and Horse are full of energy, outgoing, and generous with their love and support.

According to the Chinese zodiac, the dog has strong horse compatibility. These two naturally find it much easier to build a relationship on the foundations of peace, mutual respect, and harmony.

They are generally agreeable, so arguments over petty things are pretty unlikely. They’ll openly share clothes, cook together, and trade favors now and then. They also love to go out, so neither one’s going to be a party pooper with a nay-saying attitude.

Sheep/Goat Compatibility

According to Chinese zodiac compatibility, all zodiac animals have one secret friend, and the Sheep’s secret friend happens to be the horse. This means a sheep and a horse can share a very high zodiac sign compatibility rating in a relationship.

The horse is a natural hard worker, which goes well with the goat’s appreciative nature.

A male horse is proud to be in charge of the relationship, and the female sheep keeps him going with continuous support.

Horses are rigid and don’t let their guard down quickly, but goats’ empathetic nature encourages them to open up. On the other hand, the horse acts as a beacon of wise advice for the goat whenever it’s needed.

Both signs love each other unconditionally, even the flaws.

Primary combinations discussed:

  • Tiger and Dog are “Three Harmony”, or “Elemental” combinations.
  • The Sheep/Goatis a “Six Harmony” combination.
  • Bonus combination: Horse + Sheep + Snake = “Directional” or “Seasonal” combination. The Horse is the central figure, the Dog and Tiger have no affinity otherwise.

Primary Clash: Rat

Horse and Rat have quite oppositive outlooks on life, and it’s challenging to build a sustainable romantic bond between the two. The Rat is opportunistic and always attempts to make the most logical decision in every situation. On the other hand, the Horse takes life as it comes to them, with “fun” as the primary goal.

The Horse's Difficult Relationships

Other relatively incompatible signs with the Horse are the Rabbit, the Ox, and other Horses.

  • The Rabbit is a “Cardinal” signs along with the Rat and Horse. The biggest hurdle is working out who’s the boss on a daily basis.
  • The Ox combines with the Rat, so “the friend of my enemy is my enemy” comes into play. This is one of the “Six Harms”.
  • There is a high tendency of competitiveness between two Horses, who can outshine the other?


The Horse is one of the most charming signs in the Chinese Zodiac. While their charisma makes it easier to attract mates, it can also complicate their compatibility with the other zodiac animals. This article has summed up their high compatibility with Goat, Tiger, Dog, and why they don’t pair well with clashes like Rat, Ox, Rabbit, and other Horses.
