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.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
The Project needs the assistance of the public and Kentucky's equine community to:
Help build support and recognition for the project throughout the state
Identify individuals to be interviewed
Support the project through donations
