Abstract

The Book of Mormon mentions horses a few times, even though were not in the Americas before the Spanish arrived, according to current expert opinion. There are three possible ways to approach this puzzle, dealing with archaeology, ancient cultural practices, and difficulties in translation. Each possible explanation also teaches important lessons about archaeology, ancient writings, and the nature of translations that need to be taken into account when considering questions, and curiosities about the Book of Mormon.
