The term "Horse culture" is used to define a tribal group or community whose day to day life revolves around the herding and breeding of horses. Notable examples are the Mongols of Mongolia, and the American Indians of the Great Plains, after horses had been imported from Eurasia during the 16th century.
History is littered with examples of horse cultures, such as the Huns, and other peoples in Europe and Asia. Horse cultures tend to place a great deal of importance on horses and by their very nature are a nomadic people, usually hunter-gatherers.
