Equus Forma Mechanica: The Parmigiani Fleurier Hippologia
The horse, an imposing majestic creature, is our earliest form of long-distance vehicle. Equus ferus caballus is inextricably linked to all kinds of history and has played an extremely important role in the development of modern civilization.
Only in the last century has the horse lost its status as the primary mode of transportation except in the most remote areas of the world.
While dogs, cats, sheep, cattle, goats, and pigs were domesticated first, domestication of the horse around 3000 BCE was a big turning point, one that allowed humankind to travel quickly. Horses allowed for much faster migration and the eventual clashing of cultures thanks to territories overlapping with previously unknown peoples.
