Saddle up for a picture-perfect horse show.

It is no surprise that horses have starred in children’s books for generations. Horses make ideal leading characters—they carry us on adventures, race to our rescue, bear our burdens, and bring us joy. Whether in fairytales or historical narratives, stories of horses touch our emotions time and again.

This exhibition showcases both classic and contemporary picture books exploring the ways horses have captivated human hearts and artistic imaginations. It features tales of triumph and heartbreak, fantasy and friendship. Most significantly, it examines how horses—in life and in the pages of a book—expand our humanity.
