Letter: See Museum of Natural History’s ‘Horse,’ of course
First Published Jul 29 2014 03:52 pm • Last Updated Jul 29 2014 03:52 pm

Visit the Museum of Natural History of Utah today! There’s a horse exhibit called "The Horse" open from July 21 to Jan. 4. It is on the third floor and down the left hall. (While you come to visit, you should check out The Sky Terrace on the fifth floor.) Visiting "The Horse" is fun because you get to see horse show awards, a movie about horses’ teeth, a movie about horses, a movie that shows horse skeletons and sculptures of horses. I learned some stuff about horses, such as: some of their relatives, how you tell horses’ moods, and how they hear.

This exhibit is important because it tells us, in the words of the Natural History Museum, "the fascinating story of how humans shaped horses and how the horses, in turn, have shaped us."

"The Horse" is great for young kids who like horses, cowboys and cowgirls. If you love horses, you should visit this exhibit. I learned that when knights ride their horses sometimes their horses wear armor. I saw how tall a horse is in hands and the parts of a horse’s body. I think it is important because it shows the fascinating story of horses and it is fun to explore.
