The objective of this intensive Horses & Heritage Study Programme at Saxony is to bring experts of the field together and to explore the rich horse related heritage of Saxony and its capital Dresden.
The study programme is intended for historians, art-historians or scientists of related fields, curators or collectors with a special interest in horses and heritage. It is addressed to an international, English speaking audience and will take place exclusively in English. To make it an enjoyable and fruitful experience, the programme is designed for a maximum of 25 participants.
The 6-day programme includes a symposium in the Dresden Museum of Transport, which is located in the former Royal Mews, a magnificent 16th century Renaissance building. Participants have the opportunity to meet and interact with fellow researchers in the field of equine history studies and to present a piece of related work.
On the following days we will explore the rich horse-related heritage of Dresden and Saxony, including visits to the famous State Collections of Dresden Palace, the State Studs at Graditz and Moritzburg, as well as several palaces and parks, historic towns and landscapes where horses used to play an important role.
