Horses played a big part in the making of our province. Settlers depended on their horse or horses for travel, power in the fields, for fun and for carrying goods to market. Without horses, our province would not have grown as quickly into what it is today. These animals are a valuable part of our history – and a valuable asset in telling our story at the Western Development Museum – North Battelford.

We’ve developed this program at a preschool level so students will learn about horses, how important they are to us today and especially how important they were to the people of long ago. Students will take a wagon ride, visit animals in our big red barn and tour Museum exhibits.

Swishing his tail and pointing his nose,
Over the hill the horsie goes;
Pulling the wagon with us inside-
Oh how happy we are for the ride.
