Horses - 5,500 Years of Domestication

200903061220760-1Horses were first domesticated in Kazakhstan about 5,500 years ago and were both ridden and milked. That was about 2,000 years earlier than the first known existence of domestication in Europe. Over time, we have created more than 200 breeds, from the powerful Clydesdale to the graceful Arabian. As we have shaped horses to suit our needs on battlefields, farms, and elsewhere, these animals have shaped human history.
