|When we think of New Mexico history we sometimes forget that the humans in the narrative have often been dependent on their equine companions. The influence of New Mexico on the history of the horse in the Americas is both fascinating and profound.
Speaker and author Cynthia Culbertson shares the story of the horse in New Mexico during this virtual presentation. Cynthia has served as a consultant and co-curator of equine exhibits internationally, including a UNESCO World Heritage Museum. She is also the author of several books and a lecturer and narrator for various multiple educational programs.
