  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Horites 
  cave-men,  a  race  of  Troglodytes  who  dwelt  in  the  limestone  caves 
  which  abounded  in  Edom.  Their  ancestor  was  "Seir,"  who  probably 
  gave  his  name  to  the  district  where  he  lived.  They  were  a  branch 
  of  the  Hivites  (Gen.  14:6;  36:20-30;  1  Chr.  1:38,  39).  They  were 
  dispossessed  by  the  descendants  of  Esau,  and  as  a  people 
  gradually  became  extinct  (Deut.  2:12-22).
