The history of horses in New Hampshire
Before the arrival of Europeans, Algonquian-speaking native peoples lived in this area. The first English and French explorers arrived from 1600 to 1605, waging war on the Wabanaki Confederacy in the late seventeenth century. As in many other states, horses were essential to the European arrivals and adopted by the local tribes. Although a small state, New Hampshire has the highest percentage of forest to land size ratio of any state and has high mountains in the north. Horses were essential for exploration and logging. On the sea coast, horses worked in sawmills and as draft horses, carrying the various products that were imported and exported. New Hampshire can experience very severe winters, so horses were essential for drawing sleighs in snowy weather. Popular breeds included the Morgan Horse and the Narragansett Pacer, both of which were versatile American breeds produced in the New England territories. Horses were not only essential for work but also for leisure activities, such as racing and making social visits. Trotting races were popular at state fairs.
New Hampshire grew wealthy from industries such as lumber, stone for building materials, and textiles. Rich merchants needed fine horses for their carriages. Proving the importance of horses to the early economy, the town of Lyme, New Hampshire, has the longest string of horse sheds in New England. Recent efforts have been made to conserve the buildings, which may date to the late eighteenth century. By 1814, stagecoaches operated to and from Concord, with several weekly stages also going to New York state by 1834. Today, tourism is increasing in New Hampshire, and horses play a part in this developing sector. Trail riding in the mountains, carriage drives, and sleigh rides in winter are all popular in New Hampshire.

The most famous horse in New Hampshire
A New Hampshire Thoroughbred named Dancer’s Image was at the heart of some controversy in 1968. The leading racehorse, a son of the famous Native Dancer, was owned and trained by Peter D. Fuller of Runnymede Farm in New Hampshire. Dancer’s Image crossed the line first at the Kentucky Derby in 1968. However, he was disqualified because traces of the anti-inflammatory phenylbutazone were found in his blood. This led to a court case and legal proceedings that continued for many years, the horse’s owner maintaining he had been the victim of a criminal act to discredit him. Dancer’s Image was eventually retired to stud in Maryland. Later he was at stud in Ireland, France, and finally, Japan, where he died at the age of 27 in 1992.
