A Horse History Theme Park

So recently I’ve taken a little journey in the area of horses and history. More specifically, the learning has occurred with regards to horses in the United States of America. That said I have learned about other horse history events around the world. This has led me to think about the possibility of a horse history theme park.

What would it entail? How would it work? Some of you may be familiar with the Living Horse Museum in Chantilly, France. This museum focuses on the impact of the horse throughout history around the world. There are over 30 rooms that show statues, mythical creatures, paintings, poems, little figurines and even life size dummies displayed in a myriad of horse riding apparel.

On top of this, they have a display of various living horses that cover different breeds. Demonstrations are also provided with live horses.

So it could be something like this. But instead, the sections of the park would focus on different events or aspects in horse history. For example, there could be an area where ponies or draught horses are used to log trees. As people travel around the park, they can do so via horse and carriage, driven by someone who works at the park.

A few times a day, messages could be handed to riders on their equine member of the pony express, and this message could then be raced around the park’s perimeter to see how quickly it can be delivered by the team. A channel that meanders through the park could have a boat on it that is pulled by a team of working mules as was the case with the Erie Canal in the US.

A horse racing event could be held in the middle of the day to highlight the world’s interest in horse racing still today. Ponies of similar stature to those used for mining could be paraded for people to inspect.  And history fact sheets could even be provided to onlookers. There are many possibilities!

If there was a place you could go to learn about how the horse has left its hoof print on our history, would you? I think this could draw a lot of interest from horse fanatics and history buffs alike. What do you think?
