Just Published: The Hawaiian Horse

Last June we were treated to a sneak preview of The Hawaiian Horse, the latest in the remarkable series of Bergin volumes detailing an era in Hawai‘i’s history. Our whistles having been collectively wet, authors and veterinarians Dr. Billy Bergin and son Dr. Brady Bergin return this afternoon with a more detailed account of their just-published book. It’s a definitive history of the role of the horse in Hawai‘i from its arrival in 1803 through the social, agricultural, military, and sports fields over a span of two centuries. 

Celebrated are the men and women who have contributed to the horse’s importance in the era of royalty, sugar and pineapple times, two world wars, and the arenas of pa‘u, polo, racing, rodeo, dressage, and pleasure riding. Current issues such as overpopulation, humane care, and equine health are handled in sensitive but realistic terms as they apply to local as well as national venues.

Join us this Saturday as these knowledgeable vets and compelling storytellers describe the horse’s place in Hawai‘i’s future in prophetic, practical, and cautiously optimistic terms. Copies of this beautiful book will be available in the Museum Shop, and Drs. B and B will be happy to inscribe them.
Admission to these wonderful programs is free to Museum members, and $3.00 for nonmembers.
