    Man's development over the last several thousand years has, to a large extent, depended on the use and exploitation of the horse. The course starts with the evolution of the horse and then goes on to consider various aspects of the way in which the horse has assisted man e.g. in war and conquest, economically in agriculture and industry and even in the development of nations eg. the United States. No previous knowledge of the horse is assumed.
