Did you know that in the early 20th century PEI banned the latest “fad” invention, the automobile, because it was perceived as a direct threat to the safety and well-being of the Island equine population? Tis true, and at that time there were nearly 40,000 horses on the Island. They were omnipresent, much adored, and a central protagonist in the industry, culture and family life of the Island.
And so we’ve decided to celebrate them with a special edition volume of RED dedicated completely to their stories. It is a collection full of love, humor, hard-work and history that illustrates the endearing and enduring human/horse connection that was and still is a part of who we are. Here’s to the horses!
