Horses helped to make our civilizations’ and progress, watch there muscles ripple as they seem to glide, they gallop and trot, whinny and neigh, capturing our imagination — and our hearts. Indeed, horses are said to have done more to change human history than any other domestic animal, once upon a time carrying explorers to new frontiers and mighty armies to great conquests.
