Ride into the past to see how the seemingly humble horse forever changed the way humans fought and conquered.

In the 5th century, Rome's mighty empire crumbled beneath the hooves of war-horses that carried invaders from the rugged Asian steppes: the armies of Attila the Hun. Examine the empire's defeat and the Huns' nomadic existence, in which life and death depended on their mastery of the horse. And look back on a thousand years of warfare that was dominated by mounted soldiers: armor-clad Samurai, European knights, and the armies of Genghis Khan.
