Humans and horses have a long history of coexistence. The earliest domesticated horses were most likely brought into existence by Asian nomads some 4,000 years ago, and many human communities continued to depend on them until the invention of the engine. In many cultures, horses continue to be revered and are frequently connected to valiant military actions.
