Absolutely. I make a very similar point in my forthcoming AUP monograph,
'The Horse in Early Modern Culture: Bridled, Curbed, and Tamed'. You
evidently know a great deal about the material manifestations of early
modern equine culture, Mr. Goldshalk. Prof. Edwards and myself look
forward excitedly to your application to contribute to our project.
