From battlefields of ancient Rome to modern day cattle ranches, horses have been a part of our lives for centuries for both work and pleasure. In this class we’ll be taking a look at everything equine!  Did you know that Mulan’s horse “Khan” from the Disney movie was likely based on an ancient Chinese horse breed that is now extinct? We’ll learn all about the different breeds of horses from fuzzy Shetland ponies to giant draft horses. We’ll watch equine athletes compete with their human riders in exciting sporting events like rodeos, races and the Olympic Games. Together we’ll examine the many jobs of horses, both past and present. We’ll take a look at how horses are depicted in art, movies and books and discuss how our favorite fictional horses compare to real life horses. Lastly, we’ll learn the benefits of interacting with horses and discover local opportunities to participate in equestrian programs for people with disabilities.
