Horsing Around – A 2000 Year Old Love Affair: Exhibition... Must See

Friday 3rd April - Friday 31st July

3rd April to 31st July 2015

Leicestershire without the horse – unthinkable and just to prove a point an exhibition is opening at Snibston to celebrate the long history that the area has with the horse.

All aspects of the horse will be looked at, the role of the horse through the ages, the horse in the twenty-first century, the role that the horse has to play in sport. When you think of the horse in an historical context you often think of a frosty morning, horses at the plough with the ploughman guiding their way. This romantic view was not always the case; often both horses and men worked long hours, the heavy work taking its toll on their health.

Throughout history the horse has played a vital role in the economy of Britain and a county such as Leicestershire is no exception. Today the horse still plays an important part in the economy of the area that should not be underestimated.

Entry to the exhibition is included in the admission price to the Museum
