Horse Industry Project

 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. Click here to access the interviews.  Watch the project video introduction to learn more:

 



 
 
 
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.

  • Help build support and recognition for the project throughout the state

  • Identify individuals to be interviewed

  • Support the project through donations
