Welcome to RIHER

        The main objective of the Research Institute on Human-Equids Relationships (NGO) is to investigate the scientific and social questions deriving from the « horses » and the « horse – human relationships », through multidisciplinary perspectives. We have already been undertaking various projects with the cooperation of numerous experts from divers fields, such as ethology, animal husbandry, history, archeology, ethnology and art. We also support communities and individuals involved in maintaining precious equine cultural and traditional activities.


We believe that these inquiries, on the past lives of the horses before encountering Human, their lives since the coexistence with the Human and the future of their species, will provide us with rich propositions. We hope this information to be useful for our understanding of the relation between Human and Nature.
