One expert on the subject of horse domestication, David Anthony, says he will go no further than suggesting that the sculpture at al‑Magar ‘might be’ from the horse genus.”To sum up, al‑Maqar is a location where human presence is attested at least from the Middle Palaeolithic down to the Protohistoric period.Besides, the Middle Holocene occupation is clearly a major discovery, shedding light on a culture whose features were only partly known up to now.A team of the SCTH along with international scholars carried out a one‑day expedition on the site.This permitted them to complete the ground sampling of artefacts and to collect organic material for radiocarbon dating.

The carving features a rounded head, arched neck, muzzle, nostrils, shoulder, withers and overall proportions that are clearly horse‑like.The best way to address the question of the domestication of the horse and its introduction in the Arabian Peninsula is still to consider available data systematically (see in this issue: Olsen; Robin and Antonini).Much has been written on the topic and our intention is not so much to produce a new synthesis as to underline the progressive shift of horse domestication along a north‑south axis, starting in central Asia and the Eurasian steppes, and progressively reaching the Middle East, Egypt, and then Arabia.The contention about domestication comes from two distinctive features, one of which suggests some kind of strap going from the shoulder to the forefoot and the other involving delicate incising around the muzzle.The proof from the find goes no higher than that, being just carvings indicative of a kind of primitive bridle.
