The Carnegie Horses will be among several groups and people honored by the Colorado Plateau Horseman’s Haul of Fame at this year’s induction ceremony, beginning at 6 p.m. July 14 at the Mesa County Fair. The Carnegie Horses helped haul hundreds of tons of dinosaur bones from a quarry in Dinosaur National Monument to a railroad station 60 miles away. From there, they were shipped to the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, Pa. Read more about them by viewing the PDF below.

Others to be inducted this year include the late Grand Junction horseman, Ben Johnson; Moab area cattleman and horse breeder Jack Taylor; and the Ute Indians, who brought the first horses to western Colorado and eastern Utah.
