In this grand, two-part ode to our equine al­lies, an­thro­pol­o­gist Niobe Thomp­son goes back mil­lions of years, show­ing in 3-D an­i­ma­tion how these proud, so­cial crea­tures evolved from smaller mam­mals, flour­ished on the planet’s grass­lands, and pow­ered the growth of hu­man civ­i­liza­tion from the mo­ment the two species joined forces.
