Product Description

Historical Society of Santa Rosa members are invited to join us for a free private evening to enjoy the History Museum of Sonoma County’s latest exhibit:

Equine Epochs: History of Sonoma County Horses

The sound is unmistakable: the thundering hooves of a running horse. Powerful, quick and, fueled by the grass it converts into energy, the horse was the vital machine that helped people traverse and transform Sonoma County’s landscape beginning in the 1700s. The introduction of horses transformed Native American cultures and helped usher in the age of the sprawling cattle ranch. The horse also developed into a favorite pastime of well-off enthusiasts, and Sonoma County became a center for fast horses- a legacy that lives on today and has developed into a nearly half billion-dollar industry. Equine Epochs recounts the role of the horse in Sonoma County. From the plow horse to the champion racer, explore the history and ongoing legacy of the horse in Sonoma County in this exhibition.

Eric Stanley, Museum Curator, will give a short introduction. Afterward, leisurely explore the exhibit.  The event includes hosted beer, wine, and cookies.

Reservations are required. Please register online, or email Events@HisoricalSocietySantaRosa.org
