What is it like to be a horse?

            And why is it that we can understand them so well?

            Through interviews with well over a hundred scientists, The Horse -- the partnership that changed the world -- tells the 100-million-year story of the evolution of the horse-human relationship. This sweeping saga examines the science behind how horses think and act, the evolutionary forces that shaped them and us, and what this deep-time history tells us about changes in our climate over the ages.
