Toys From Around the World

As the toys in this case show, horses are deeply woven into the way we think about ourselves and our world. Horses are no longer the engine of our economy, but they remain part of our lives in stories, books, and films. Whether imagining a knight in shining armor, a dusty cowboy, or a fairy-tale princess, it is hard to imagine a hero without also imagining a horse. Horses are more than just part of our history. They have become part of who we are.
