PhD Candidate, New Zealand Centre for Human Animal Studies

My interests and research center on horses’ actual lives, and on horses’ relationships with each other and with humans who care for, and/or ride them. I am currently carrying out equine centered research in Heathcote Valley, Christchurch, Aotearoa New Zealand. My research explores life stories of horses used for riding in Heathcote, and considers how power articulates with care in horse-human relationships.
