Of particular interest among the exhibits were archaeological finds found in ancient settlements. They show that horses have long played an important role in the life of Turkmens. One of them — a glazed ceramic statuette depicting a rider on a saddled horse — belongs to the XII—XIV centuries. The bottom of a ceramic vessel with a preserved fragment of a painting depicting a horse belongs to the IX—XIV centuries. A fragment of the wall of a large vessel with a stylized image of a galloping horse has also come down to us from about that time. All of them were found during archaeological excavations in the settlement Abiverd. A terracotta figure of a horse, discovered in the settlement of Murzebek on the territory Of the Kerki etrap of the Lebap velayat, dates back to the III—V centuries.
