New Exhibit at Natural History Museum

An exhibit centered around horses traces their relationship with the human race.
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (Good 4 Utah) - Horses have been around much longer than the human species—for about 50 million years. Humans and horses are powerfully linked, however, and their symbiotic relationship is the subject of a new exhibition, “The Horse,” open now through January 4, 2015 the Natural History Museum of Utah on the University of Utah campus.

Museum visitors will be able to see the evolution of horses across the ages as they view artwork, interactive displays, and cultural objects—from the dozen species that roamed the plains of North America to the modern race horses.
