Horse Exhibit at AMNH

Today I went to the "Horse" Special Exhibition at the Museum of Natural History. It was very informative about how the horse evolved, and how humans domesticated this animal and its contributions to our society. One very interesting fact is that the game of "Polo" originated in Manipur, India. The British popularized the game, but for hundreds of years before Indians as well as the Kings of the Middle East were playing the game.
