Event description

Description

The Society for Court Studies and the Centre for Studies in the Long Eighteenth Century at the University of Kent will be hosting a major symposium on courts and horses from the sixteenth century to the present, taking in equestrian, sporting, military and ceremonial history.

What was the connection between horsemanship and power at different courts? What were the relationships between equestrian practices and military training? In a period when having ‘an eye for a horse’ was part of a gentlemanly as well as royal education, what codes of breeding and connoisseurship were operating? These are some of the questions that this symposium will seek to answer.
