The Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History has initiated a project to record the firsthand experiences and stories of people who work with horses in Kentucky. Our purpose is to build a collection that represents the diversity of the equine community and fosters a better appreciation for the historical, cultural, and economic significance of the horse to Kentucky.

With start-up funds provided by KEEP (the Kentucky Equine Education Project) and the University of Kentucky, project staff are conducting interviews preserving the history of racing and non-racing breeds in the commonwealth, as well as many occupations that support the equine industry.
