Research in hippology lacks a fixed location within North American academia. Crossing the boundaries of science and art, hippology has entered the discourses of archeologists, classical historians, art historians, cognition scientists, physical and psychotherapists. This paper locates the intersections of hippology and anthropology by analyzing studies ranging from early domestication to hippotherapy and proposes horse-human ecology as a dynamic field of inquiry for anthropological research.
