Native America Calling: No ordinary animal

Horses: no ordinary animal
The early bond between Native Americans and horses was both technical and spiritual.

For centuries, horses amplified the range and power for tribes, especially in the west. New discoveries are potentially rewriting what we know about the use of horses by the earliest inhabitants of North America.

Those ancient bonds translate into a lasting spiritual and vocational connection that continues for those who work with horses.

Join Native America Calling to hear from some of them about how Native knowledge and horses go together.
