Statement of Acknowledgement
The International Museum of the Horse acknowledges the privileges and prejudices of its exhibits and storytelling. There has been a lack of diversity and inclusivity in its past and we are committed to sharing and highlighting all-embracing histories and narratives. Within the last five years, the staff at IMH have participated in diversity and sensitivity training, researched for better exploration of black history within the equestrian world, and have been planning our current and future exhibits with better accessibility in mind.
Over the course of the next five years, IMH will be evaluating and rewriting much of our current narratives to include stories from multiple viewpoints. We strive to partner with and participate in usable and useful plans with our community members and fellow organizations.
Our year of Heritage, History, and Celebration is just at its midpoint. Join us in celebrating our LGBTQ+ family during June for Pride Month.
June – LGBTQIA+ Pride Month
- Family Story Time, 6/9/2021: The second Wednesday of each month will feature a children's book read at 7pm. Make it a family night and let's all read together!
This month is Fortunate: The Fabulous, Fantastic Filly by Debbie Brady Shellady.
- IMH Book Club: Read along with us! Every month, we'll have a new Book Club pick. Share your thoughts on each book with us on social media! June's choice is Kept Animals by Kate Milliken.
- Humans of the Horse World: Join us throughout the month as we highlight personal stories from equestrians around the world! As a part of a new initiative for more diversity and inclusion, we hope to keep moving with these throughout the rest of 2021. If you would like to share your story, please email us!
