Horses have played an integral part in Sonoma County’s history: From prehistoric times to the modern day. Now a new exhibition at the History Museum of Sonoma County looks to highlight the role horses have and still play in the county. KRCB's Tiffany Camhi reports.

Equine Epochs opens July 22 and runs through November 5th. Check out the History Museum of Sonoma County website for special events and talks associated with the exhibit.

The wild horse sanctuary at Montgomery Creek Ranch, just north of Sacramento, rescues hundreds of mustangs. But the ranch also hosts events to raise awareness and educate horsemen about wild horses at its sister training facility in Sonoma County. At a recent demonstration a traditional Argentinian technique called Doma India was used to gentle some of the ranch's horses. KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi reports.

Wild mustangs are an enduring symbol of American culture - representing freedom, beauty and power. But these horses are rapidly losing their place on public lands. One Sonoma County resident is trying to change that by providing a local sanctuary for displaced mustangs. KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi reports.
