Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

The International Museum of the Horse is committed to educating the general public, equestrian, and academic communities about the relationship between man and the horse throughout history and the world.


Vision Statement

The International Museum of the Horse (IMH) will educate the public about the history of the relationship between man and the horse and of the roles of the horse in contemporary society through engaging exhibitions, publications and educational programs as well as through the collection and conservation of pertinent artifacts.

The IMH programs will be available to more visitors than ever through modern technology, and it is anticipated that visitors will seek to be more involved in the horse industry through improved communication and innovative partnerships. Through its library, archive, and permanent collections, the Museum will also be a source of opportunities for research and scholarship in equine studies.
