Animals > Equines > Mearas > Horses > Ponies

    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.
