The introduction of The Culture of the Horse: Status, Discipline, and Identity in the Early Modern World explains that “the editors…aim to reintroduce scholars to ‘the significance of the horse in the early modern period’ and thereby to fill a void in the current state of scholarship.” This void extends to equine historical scholarship of other time periods. In addition, there has often been an assumption that "a horse is a horse," with little change in the animal itself since domestication. There has been a recent, long overdue, surge in equestrian historical scholarship for many time periods and many disciplines. We seek to bring together the scattered researchers of the world, to make the sharing of knowledge easier.
