History of the horse
A horse lover living within New York City's confines, I'm resigned to petting police horses in reminiscence of my childhood. (There's a police horse that hangs out on Broadway near Houston who's best trick is kissing ladies' hands.) But there is a light.
Starting Saturday and lasting until next January, "The Horse," a new exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History, will show the "enduring bond between horses and humanity." The horse's role in history has been monumental, and visitors will understand so after learning how these gorgeous animals were used in warfare, work, sports, spirituality and more.
Opening day on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. will feature none other than Thumbelina, the world's smallest horse (that's her on the right)! I'm totally there. More to come.
