with man stems back 30,000 B.C., it was initially
seen as a source of food. As time went on, however,
man learned that the horse could be an extremely
useful asset in everyday life. Whether the horse
was used for transportation or simply to aid in
hunting animals that man could not traditionally
catch, this once hunted creature became vary valuable.
The domestication of the horse was first seen around
3000 B.C. in China where horse drawn chariots were
used in wars and invasions.
The horse was highly popularized in the art of
the Romans with numerous popular pieces depicting
the anatomical features of the horse to more dynamic
sculptures of battles and chariot races. The horse
gained further recognition by the cowboys and
American Indians of the wild west who relied so
heavily on this creature for survival. In a more
contemporary setting, the elegance of the sport
of thoroughbred racing has put the horse on a
pedestal above most other animals.
