Equines are donkies, ponies, horses, and mules.
Nahar, steed of the Vala Orome, was the first horse. Mearas are the
great horses, closest descendents of Nahar. From these came horses and
from these came ponies.
The Rohirrim, the human people of
Rohan, were the greatest of the horse breeders, and only Elves were
better riders with their balance and ability to communicate.
