The history of the Northern Plains cannot be told without the presence of the horse. Reintroduced to North America by European explorers in the late 1400s, horses quickly became prized animals to Native Americans and European settlers. Since their return to the plains, horses have solidified themselves as a crucial component of our life and culture.
