As a Research Writer for the Equine Heritage Institute I am involved with some of the research for the many books that the Institute publishes. It's a very exciting and gratifying opportunity to be able to write about the role the horse has played in shaping world civilizations and changing lives.
"Despite horses’ enormous contribution to the world around us, they remain strangely absent from history textbooks and curriculum across the education landscape. The Equine Heritage Institute was founded in an effort to bridge this knowledge gap. Established in 1995, the mission of the Equine Heritage Institute is to educate, celebrate and preserve the history of the horse and its role in shaping world civilizations and changing lives. The Institute is working to ensure that the developments that horses facilitated throughout history are recognized, embraced, and taught to future generations."
