Horse Girls (ウマ娘, Uma Musume) are the reincarnations of racehorses from another world. Their fate is to forever run towards their goals.
Visibly, horse girls are human girls who possess horse features. They have horse ears instead of a human's and a tail that matches their hair color. They are also blessed with incredible speed and stamina, which grants them the ability to race others of their kind. Horse girls are well known amongst mankind and appear to be greatly adored by them as well.
