The Long Riders Guild Academic Foundation
The world’s first global hippological study


Our Mission

“Science, not Superstition”

To maintain the world’s first open-source academic website devoted to the study of all aspects of hippological influence in the arts and sciences.

To invite the participation of all humans, regardless of race, national origin or native language, to share their horse-related wisdom with others.

To provide a forum, free of commercial influence, wherein equine-related articles are provided free to scholars, students and equine enthusiasts.

To publish every major work known to man dealing with equestrian wisdom and history.
