The Natural History Museum of Utah is presenting the exhibit "The Horse," which tells the story of how humans have shaped the horse and how the horse, in turn, has shaped humans.
This special exhibition includes cultural objects from around the world, a hand-painted diorama depicting the evolution of the horse, and interactive features that invite people to test their strength in horsepower, identify different breeds, and peek inside a life-size, moving horse.
The exhibit also shows the connection of the Ute people to horses. The Utes were among the first North American tribes to acquire horses from the Spanish in the 1600s.
