When I was a girl I was only interested in things in museums if they involved horses. I’ve developed a slightly broader range of interests now, but to my mind, by focusing on horses, I learn about everything else: As Chomel put it, “L’Histoire du cheval est celle de l’humanité” – the history of horses is the history of man. So here’s a jumbled, greedy selection of some images from the trips I’ve made to research book two. I took these for my own reference, and I’m scrupulous about not using a flash if asked not to, so I’m afraid these are a little gloomy, but you get the jist. Here goes.
