HIST 8.08 Horse History

The use of the horse in war and transport coincides with the emergence of written history, and the end of the use of the horse in war and transport coincides with the transition to the age of nuclear weapons and electronic communications. In between, the horse has been essential to global processes of agricultural and industrial development, urbanization, exploration and conquest. In many societies horses have also been associated with the fundamentals of social stratification and gender dichotomies. For good reason, the horse as a representation has also taken on profound cultural and religious roles.
