The Horse is arriving at the Museum of Civilization


Gatineau, Quebec — Years of history on the relation- ship between the horse and the human will be present- ed at the Canadian Muse- um of Civilization from May 28, 2010 to January 2, 2011. Premiering in Cana- da, The Horse looks at how these magnificent animals have changed the course of human history, and how we in turn have changed them. “The Horse celebrates a unique bond between human and animal that has fundamentally transformed both,” says Victor Rabi- novitch, President and CEO of the Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation. “Horses are associated with almost every aspect of the human experience — transporta- tion, trade, agriculture, war, industry, spirituality, art, sports and more. No other animal has had such a


far-reaching influence on cultures around the world. Canadians in particular love horses and seem to have a strong emotional attachment to them. A first in Canada — don’t miss it!”


The must-see exhibi- tion follows the evolution- ary path of the horse, both before and after it was domesticated by humans 6,000 years ago. In that time, we have developed more than 200 breeds whose size, shape, strength and disposition make them suited to specific activities. There are huge, gentle Clydesdales to pull heavy loads, sturdy Argentine Criollos for driving cattle, swift thoroughbreds to race, elegant Friesians for dressage, and spirited Arabians for riding long
