There was a time when mankind did not have tamed horses to help with labor and
travel. Humans had to do all the hard work themselves, they had to walk
everywhere they wanted to go and they had to carry whatever they needed to take
with them. There were no tamed horses to help them and horses were actually
hunted for meat! So how did humans begin to see the benefit of taming these wild
equine animals to help them with daily living? This webquest is all about the
history of the horse and its domestication into a working animal.
