What Does Golden Ocala Offer to the Horse Enthusiast?
The relationship between horse and human – on a purely instinctual level – may have begun 6,000 years ago. Archaeologists believe humans began domesticating horses in central Asia after discovering evidence of horse-human interaction in Ukraine and Kazakhstan.
Historians conclude that horses were fully domesticated by 3,000 BC leading to the long and storied bond that helped usher in the development of modern civilization – at least until the creation of that mechanical marvel, the horseless buggy.
As the 20th century dawned, the horse-human relationship may have appeared destined to fade into the annals of human development. But the mystique of this unusual connection would endure – in the hearts of horse enthusiasts and lovers of the wild. Only that passion for the equine helped bring the pastime and the industry to new and greater depths of understanding and appreciation.
