Comments: The Horsecollar Ruin site at Natural Bridges National Monument is one of the most interesting ancestral Puebloan sites in the area. It is located on a cliff about half way between Sipapu and Kachina Bridges in White Canyon. The name "Horsecollar" comes from the shape of the doorways to several structures here. Abandoned more than 700 years ago, it is in a remarkable state of preservation, due to the isolation of Natural Bridges and the relatively few visitors who hike down these canyons. Incredibly, the fingerprints of the person who made the horsecollar-shaped openings are still visible. Unfortunately many priceless arrowhead and pottery artifacts formerly found here have been stolen.
The peoples who lived here were Mesa Verdean Anasazi, whose culture is perhaps best exemplified at Mesa Verde in Colorado. This area was repeatedly occupied and abandoned in prehistory, first being used about 2700 to 2500 years ago. By AD1270, all the ancestral Puebloans migrated south. The natural bridges had special significance to the Hopi Indians. Sipapu, means "the place of emergence" in Hopi Indian legends.
