    Horse Domestication

    Horse Domestication
    There is no date on when horses were domesticated. Although there were pictures on the inside of caves back in Prehistoric times on caves, they think that horses were wild and just being hunted for meat in the pictures. Today the horses that are domestic are breeded to do many things, such as Derby Racing, Jumping, Barrel Race, or even just personal riding. Most of today's horses are not used as much as they used to be when we didn't have the machinery that we have now.
