Equus ferus caballus
For almost six thousand years humans and horses were nearly inseparable. The horse was part of daily life. The skills necessary to ride, work, train, and care for these creatures were those of the common man. Equine Knowledge was ubiquitous, permeating many levels of society and culture. Despite this deep historical connection, the last century has separated us from this animal. With the introduction of more efficient transportation methods our common knowledge of the horse has been lost. For those who have continued to foster appreciation for and knowledge of horse-work, it is a remarkable, timeless, and tactile life.
