A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Horse Collection - Progress throughout the ages has been dependent upon the use that man has made of the horse. In all of this, it is fairly obvious that man has been captivated by the horse, and especially so in modern times when its use as a beast of burden has diminished. The sport of riding has gained such popularity that whereas the horse used to be the servant of man, it is now man that is the servant of the horse, and unashamedly so. It is known that the modern horse, Equus caballus, is a descendent of a creature called Eohippus, that lived at least 50 million years ago. Domestication is believed to have first occurred about 5,000 years ago by Central Asia tribes who used them chiefly for food. The war chariot was in use in Mesopotamia about 1,700 B.C. but riding horses seems to have taken hold only after 900 B.C., again in Central Asia. Horses were introduced into Arabia about 100 B.C. and by 500 A.D. a distinctive type of horse had evolved giving the Arabs a potent weapon to push their expansion. The foot stirrup came from China about 700 A.D., and combined with a supporting saddle, gave the rider great stability. The horse was reintroduced into the Western Hemisphere by the Spanish who found the horse an overwhelming tool in conquest. As the Indians acquired the horse, their entire way of life was forever changed. And now the history of the horse has come almost full circle. Once the servant of man, the horse is now being served and kept by man, chiefly for sport.
