Hugh Carey, Deseret News
A historic Wells Fargo stagecoach was moved Tuesday into the Natural History Museum of Utah’s special exhibition gallery to spotlight a vital role of the horse in Utah and the West.
“The Horse,” an exhibit from the American History Museum in New York City, tells the story of how humans have shaped the horse and how the horse, in turn, has shaped human. The special exhibition includes cultural objects from around the world, a hand-painted diorama depicting the evolution of the horse and interactive displays that invite visitors to test their strength in horsepower, identify different breeds and look inside a life-size, moving horse. Unique to the exhibition in Utah is the special connection of the Ute Indian Tribe to horses and how the early adoption of horses made them powerful and prosperous.
The exhibit runs from July 21-Jan. 4.
