[Middle English, from Old English hors .]

Encyclopedia horse, hoofed, herbivorous mammal now represented by a single extant genus, Equus. The term horse commonly refers only to the domestic Equus caballus and to the wild Przewalski's horse , E. przewalski. (Other so-called wild horses are feral domestic horses or their descendants.) Adapted to plains environments, all Equus species, including the as and the zebra , have lengthened foot bones ending in a single toe covered by a hoof, for fast running; teeth shaped for grinding grass; and intestinal protozoa for digesting cellulose. All species have tufts of hair on the tail, used against insects, and manes on the neck. Horses, zebras, and asses can interbreed, but the offspring are usually sterile. The offspring of a horse and a donkey (domestic ass) is called a mule.

A male horse is called a stallion, or if castrated, a gelding; a female is a mare; her offspring are foals—males are colts, females are fillies. A male parent is a sire, a female parent is a dam. A single foal is born after a gestation of about 11 months. Horses reach sexual maturity in about two years, but are not fully grown for about five years. The average life span is 18 years, but 30-year-old horses are common. The standard unit of height is a hand, equal to 4 in. (10 cm).

History and Breeds

The earliest known direct ancestor of Equus, the eohippus [Gr.,=dawn horse], 10 to 20 in. (25–50 cm) tall, lived approximately 50 million years ago in both the Old and New Worlds. Equus originally evolved in North America by the late Pliocene epoch, about three million years ago, spreading to all continents except Australia. Horses disappeared from the Americas for unknown reasons about 10,000 years ago, to be reintroduced by Europeans, c. A.D. 1500.

Many species of Equus arose in the Old World. Horses were probably first domesticated by central Asian nomads in the 3d millennium B.C. Horses were recorded in Mesopotamia and China (c.2000 B.C. ), Greece (c.1700 B.C. ), Egypt (c.1600 B.C. ), and India (c.1500 B.C. ). Horses were domesticated in W Europe no later than 1000 B.C. It is not known whether these early domesticated horses developed from a single wild race or from many local races.

Largely superseding the slower, less manageable ass, which had been domesticated much earlier, the horse's first known use was for drawing Mesopotamian war chariots. It was long reserved primarily for warfare and for transportation for the rich and well-born, while cheaper animals (e.g., oxen, mules, and donkeys) were used for lowlier work. Horses figured importantly in war and conquest in Europe, central Asia, and the Middle East for over 3,000 years. Early warriors rode bareback or with saddle cloths. The saddle and the stirrup were probably developed in China in the early Christian era, spread by Asian horsemen (such as the Huns), and adopted by Arabs and Europeans in the early Middle Ages. Arab cavalry conquered the Middle East and N Africa in the 7th cent. A.D. In the same period, armored knights were riding to battles in Europe. With highly developed cavalry tactics, the Mongols extended their 13th cent. empire from China to E Europe.

The Spanish conquistadors brought horses to the New World, where Native Americans soon acquired them from ranches and missions. The Plains Indians of North America quickly developed a horse culture that led to their ascendancy in numbers and power. Horses were used for hunting buffalo and other game, for warfare, and for pulling loads on a travois . Escaped Indian horses were ancestral to the mustang , the so-called wild horse of the W United States.

The two major groups of modern horses—the light, swift southern breeds, called light horses , and the heavy, powerful northern breeds, called draft horses —are believed to have arisen independently. The small breeds called ponies may derive from a southern, light horse or from a wild race.

Draft Horses

During Roman times the Gauls and other Europeans used horses of the heavy, northern type for pulling loads and other work. In the Middle Ages huge draft animals, over 16 hands (64 in./160 cm) high, were bred to carry armored knights as well as their own armor. As cavalry warfare declined, such medieval inventions as the horseshoe and the rigid horse-collar (see harness ) made draft horses more useful for work. By the 19th cent. the draft horse had replaced the ox in N Europe and North America. Draft breeds common in the United States were the Belgian , the Clydesdale , the Percheron ; and the Shire , also the most common draft horse in England.

Light Horses

Modern light horses, all descended in part from the Arabian horse , the oldest surviving breed of known lineage, include the Thoroughbred , celebrated as a racehorse; the American saddle horse , known for its easy gaits; the Morgan and the quarter horse , favored for riding and cow herding; and the Standarbred , or trotter, developed for light harness racing. The Appaloosa and the Pinto , much used in cow herding, are distinguished by their patterned colors. The palomino is not a breed but a color type. Among the small horses are the Shetland pony and Welsh pony . The terms cow pony and polo pony refer to the animal's use rather than its size or breed. Although little used for work today, horses are widely owned for recreational riding and show activities.

Park City is a city located in the state of Utah in the United States . It is one of three major resort towns in Utah with the others being Moab and St. George . It is considered to be part of the Wasatch Back and a part of the Salt Lake City metropolitan area. The city is 30 miles (48 km) east of downtown Salt Lake City and 15 miles (24km) from Salt Lake City's east edge of Sugarhouse along Interstate 80 . The population was 7,371 at the 2000 census. Its estimated population in 2004 was 7,882. On average, the tourist population greatly outnumbers full-time residents.

After a population decline following the shutdown of the area's mining industry the city rebounded during the 1980s and 1990s in the tourism business. The city has three major ski resorts : Park City Mountain Resort , Deer Valley Resort , and The Canyons Resort . The Park City and Deer Valley ski resorts were the major locations for ski and snowboarding events at the 2002 Winter Olympics . Although they receive less snow at 300 inches (762 cm) and have a shorter season than do their counterparts in Salt Lake County , such as Snowbird resort, who accumulates 500 inches (1270 cm) each season and stays open longer, usually closing on Memorial Day in late May instead of early April, they are much easier to access.

Additionally the city is the main location of the United States's largest independent film festival, the Sundance Film Festival , home of the United States Ski Team , the largest collection of factory outlet stores in northern Utah, the Olympic bobsled course, a luge run, and golf courses. In 2005, I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer was shot in the city. Outdoor-oriented businesses such as and Rossignol have their headquarters based in Park City. The city has many upscale luxury national retailers, clubs, bars, and restaurants, and has nearby reservoirs , hot springs , forests , and hiking and biking trails. Park City is also the original home of the Mrs. Fields Cookies chain.

In the summertime many valley residents of the 2,000,000 strong Wasatch Front visit the town to escape high temperatures since Park City is usually 20°F (6°C) cooler, being that Salt Lake City sits about 4,000 feet above sea level and Park City is mostly above 7,000 feet on the back slopes of the mountain peaks that border the Salt Lake Valley and are over 11,000 feet.

Park City is one of the wealthiest cities in the United States and is notable in Utah for having a large number of northern and central European immigrants (from countries such as Norway and Switzerland ) and many California transplants. It is the most politically liberal place in the state; over two-thirds of its residents voted against banning same-sex marriage .

The city was settled as a mining town in 1870 after lead , gold , and silver were discovered in the area. The city became heavily populated to such an extent that many people thought it would replace Salt Lake City as the primary city in Utah . However, the mines penetrated the water table and were flooded, and the city nearly became a ghost town . Skiing began to come to the city in the 1950s , but the city did not recover until the 1970s , when growth finally came. Growth has accelerated in the last few decades, and it now stands as one of the most affluent and lively resort towns in the United States .

Roger J. Traynor was born in Park City in 1900 and raised there; he went on to become Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court .
