THE INCREDIBLE HORSE

 

 

The world of horses comes alive in this interactive exhibit. Visitors will interact with prehistoric horses, travel in the footsteps of early man, and try their hand at saddling a horse. The Incredible Horse exhibit follows the horse from its earliest fossil beginnings in North America to its expansion to Asia and Europe through its extinction in North America 10,000 years ago. Re-introduced to North America by the Spanish in the 16th Century horses had a profoundly shaped Native American lifeways. Today, horses are a major part of Idaho’s identity and are helping people in new ways.

The Incredible Horse exhibit is sponsored by KIDK Eyewitness News 3, KXPI Fox 5 East Idaho, and the Pine Ridge Mall.
