LAS VEGAS -- A new kind of equine elegance galloped into the Winter Las Vegas Home Furnishings and Gift Market earlier this month. It wasn't only the Year of Horse on the Chinese Lunar calendar, it was clearly the year of horse decor, as well.

According to Chinese astrology, this is the year of the wood horse, applicable to people born in 1954 and 2014. Intelligent, restless, ambitious, hard-working, impatient, adaptable and romantic, other people born in the Year of the Horse include Kobe Bryant, James Franco, Jerry Seinfeld, Jennifer Lawrence, Denzel Washington and both Franklin D. and Teddy Roosevelt. As far as we know, the only people who had trouble with wooden horses were the Greeks.

The horse year means rapid success, so Rough Riders aside, manufacturers decided not to look a gift horse in the mouth and hopped on the back of this trend with unbridled enthusiasm. Here is a roundup of the steeds they were showing.
