Learn more about the long and complex relationship between horses and humans at the Museum of Civilization’s exhibition, The Horse.

For thousands of years, humans have been shaping the evolution of horses through selective breeding, which has resulted in profound changes to the species. In turn, horses have forever altered human culture, by changing how we worked, waged war, travelled, displayed our status, engaged in sports and harvested food.

Among the priceless artifacts on display is a full suit of house armour from the 15th century, and a horse-drawn fire engine from the 19th century.
