Join us in sunny SoCal! Registration is open for the Equine History 2018 hosted by the W. K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Library at California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, California. For the full program and registration information, see the website here.

Our keynote is Dr. Richard Nash, well known for his work on early Thoroughbreds. With equine historians from around the world joining us for an in depth weekend, we are very excited to highlight the importances of the horse– and their relatives– to human history. We are equally thrilled to be in Pomona, California–an important center for Arabian horse breeding, as well as for the history and culture of the United States. On these grounds, the breakfast cereal mogul W. K. Kellogg bred Arabian horses brought from the Crabbet Stud in England and became a popular ambassador to the early Hollywood entertainment industry. His land was eventually donated to the state’s university system and housed the cavalry remount breeding program during World War II. A popular campaign to preserve the Arabian breeding center and restore its public educational purpose led to the development of the first southern California agricultural science program in the Cal State University system in the Kellogg Arabian Center. 

Come for the conference, stay for the research collection, or for Disneyland, we won't judge. Registration is open until Nov. 9 – or until sold out.
