Horses and written articles of horse history


Horse History site area logo: Close up of a very old historical snaffle bit.


 Horse history has evolved through man’s need, use and love of the horse and his historical partnership with the horse over centuries. Much has been written of this or that famous horse in both times long past or not so long ago. It is also true  and of equal interest in history, that sometimes such tales simply speak of the bond between horse and man, rather than of a famous individual.

The oldest name in show horse publications in the United States, Saddle & Bridle magazine, has generously agreed to allow Horse Show Central to reprint many of their horse history articles. All articles were written by the magazine’s featured authors and all articles are copyrighted by the magazine.

In sharing the love of horses , facts and sentiments of horse history, we wish you much pleasure, fact-finding and entertainment.
