Equine Sesquicentennial Presents:
Riding Through the Years

November 28 – December 16, 2016

Students of the fall 2016 Equine Sesquicentennial class within the equine studies program at the University of New Hampshire have been researching the history of horses at UNH. The research is in light of the University of New Hampshire’s 150th year anniversary. Seven students have done extensive investigations on the many roles that horses have played on the UNH campus over the decades.

Many equine topics have been explored during the investigations. Such topics include: equine academics, facilities, the breeding program, shows and competitions, therapeutic riding, recreational uses, and demographics of students. Students spent time compiling information from archives in the UNH library, documents and photos in and around the equine facilities, and interviews conducted with current and passed influential personnel.

Faculty, staff, and community are invited to join the students on Nov 30th, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM to enjoy snacks and explore the history of the University’s equine program and to partake in the big reveal.

After the exhibit’s debut, posters and artifacts will be kept around the barn, the equine center, and the light horse classroom for future generations to learn about.

Also join us for more exhibits and events as we celebrate 150 years of UNH!
