What do we do?

InCAh seeks to promote Anthrohippology as a distinct sub-field of Anthrozoology and to draw together leaders in the academic and equine communities who are already working in different strands of this exciting and productive area of study. We also model Human/Horse Interaction in our academic and experiential learning programs, including our Horses For Peace program.
