The Equine History Collective's blog is up and running at EquineHistory.org. Each Sunday we will run a short book review, and are seeking submissions. More information can be found at https://equinehistory.wordpress.com/2017/10/01/ehcs-most-wanted-books/ We also welcome calls for papers and museum reviews, which will run when submissions are accepted. Anyone working on an equine historical project is invited to submit a listing to EHC.

‘It is intriguing to reflect that everyone in the Middle Ages, as a matter of course, must have been able to guess the social rank of every horse that came in sight, just as they recognized ranks of people. Horses and people intermingled everywhere, locked in a relationship that made indispensable to each other.’ (Joan Thirsk, ‘Foreword’ to Ann Hyland, The Horse in the Middle Ages)
