Navajo National Monument

You can tell that his two-horse wagon has traveled many a mile over rough Navajo reservation roads. One of the many styles made around the turn of the century specifically for the Indian trade, and sold at trading posts. Horse drawn wagons are a rare sight on the reservation today.

In your travels through the reservation, you've undoubtedly already encountered plenty of pickup trucks—the most popular mode of Navajo transportation today. Horses are used for herding sheep and other livestock, and for competing in rodeos. It's common practice among Navajos to share rides, and to take people where they need to go in exchange for good conversation.
