    New ways of understanding the human–horse relationship

    Ethical matters pertaining to the human–horse relationship are examined in a new anthology from Routledge, Equine Cultures in Transition: Ethical Questions edited by Jonna Bornemark, Petra Andersson and Ulla Ekström von Essen. We gave the book to our own expert in equestrian and equine studies Susanna Hedenborg, and her review reveals a close critical reading of all 16 chapters. She may have wanted more, but she calls the book as it is both challenging, stimulating and inspiring.

    “Both books are welcome in the field of equestrian studies and constitute significant contributions to the field”

    Susanna Hedenborg reviews and appreciates two new books that deal with equestrianism, differently and yet similarly, Equestrian Cultures in Global and Local Contexts by Miriam Adelman & Kirrilly Thompson, eds., (Springer), and Women, Horseracing and Gender: Becoming ‘One of the Lads’ by Deborah Butler (Routledge).
