Horses as Transportation

Originally, settlers in America used rivers and creeks to navigate.  This is how so many colonial homes are found around Tidewater Virginia.  However, as the communities developed and dirt roads were made inland, the horse became prominent in the daily operation of the farm or plantation.  Also, from the beginning, it was used as recreation and you read about horse shows and horse racing as early as the 1600's.  A very popular sport in the Virginia Colony. However, Georgians were not as wealthy as Virginians.  After all, Virginia developed from 1607, while Georgia did not really get started until 1752, the date that the Trustees surrendered the Georgia Charter.  Did you know that it was after 1752 that slaves were introduced into Georgia.  They came into the State from slavesowners in the New England States who departing agriculture for manufactured goods.
