Excerpt from Horse Raising in Colonial New England
Horses were used on the sugar plantations to turn the rollers of the cane-crushing mills, to haul the cane from the fields, and to transport sugar and supplies. They were in demand for saddle purposes also. As far as New Engl... and was concerned, there is ample evidence that the exportation of horses to supply this need of the sugar islands formed a very important part of the commerce which was carried on between the two groups of British colonies in the New World, and that it was equally important in the trade which grew up between New England and the French West Indies when these islands also began the cultiva tion of sugar. The observations of contemporary writers, the reports of the various colonial governors to the Board of Trade in London, port records and various commercial statistics of the period which have been made available by modern research, and many other scattered sources of information, indicate that this was the case.
