Former Nashoba North rider instructor and current professor at Roger Williams College, Charlotte Carrington-Farmer is a contributing writer of Equestrian Cultures, Horses, Human Society, and the Discourse of Modernity is out with the University of Chicago Press!
Detailing the trade of horses in the 18th century, Charlotte’s work is incorporated in “Equestrian Cultures” and provides intense discussion on the role of horses. She analyzes the way horses, particularly the Narragansett Pacer, were pivotal to New England and sugar production. She shows how horses were used and traded, and how these processes were shaped by technological developments, politics, trade, and warfare.
Check out some excellent equine history essays, amongst which is her chapter on ‘Trading Horses in the Eighteenth Century: Rhode Island and the Atlantic World.’
Camp Nashoba North offers one of New England’s premier horseback riding programs. If you would like to be a part of it all, we invite you to join us this summer in Maine at beautiful Camp Nashoba North!
