If not, it might be interesting to read about the history of this noble animal. Around 5000 years ago arose a special relationship between man and horse. Around this time horses were tamed for the first time, first to ride them and later to help the man with the heavy work on the land. Horses were also used as mounts in war situations. The term cavalry is derived from the word 'Cheval', French for horse. Generals, emperors and kings had themselves portrayed on a horseback. It was the horse that expressed the high position of its rider, as being depicted on a horseback was a privilege of the ruling elite.
