Most Famous Horses in Art


Horses rapidly became the most common mode of transportation for the majority of the world’s inhabitants, including Asia and Europe up to around 1,000 years ago.  Horses have always been appreciated for their majesty, as well as the fact that they are extremely devoted to people and are among the most loved domestic species on the planet.
