Debbie Grayson Lincoln, Laurie Pace, Diane Whitehead and Mary Jo Zorad have as many similarities as they do differences. Their artwork demonstrates a common commitment to a high standard of workmanship. To speak with any one of the four women reveals a commonality in what inspires them and how they choose to live their lives, with integrity and a commitment to doing their work for a higher cause.

Carrie Kitley

With an avid love of horses since childhood, I feel a deep connection to this enchanting subject. Through my photography, I am able to capture the soul of the equine spirit as well as the innocence of children, the beauty of nature, and the magic of our quirky and interesting world.

Jane Smiley’s Top 10 Books about Horses

When I was learning to ride horses, manuals were essentially worked-over cavalry manuals: horses were to obey, and the rider’s job was to know how to give orders. That changed in the 1960s, when trainers who had never been in the cavalry began to pay attention to horse behaviour.

Horse Fossil Yields Astonishingly Old Genome

Researchers have recovered DNA from a nearly 700,000-year-old horse fossil and assembled a draft of the animal’s genome from it.
