The Perfect Horse Lecture
We are delighted to host New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Letts to discuss her book The Perfect Horse on Wednesday, November 8 at 6:30 p.m. at AGRIscapes. The Perfect Horse tells the story of how a small unit of American soldiers who captured a German spy who had photos of beautiful white horses that were stolen and kept on a secret farm. The Nazis had captured the purebred animals with plans of genetically engineering the perfect warhorse, according to Letts.
During the final days of World War Two, some of the world’s finest, purebred Arabian horses were rescued from the clutches of Nazi Germany and were later sent to live at cereal magnate W.K. Kellogg’s former ranch in Pomona, now the home of Cal Poly Pomona and the W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center. Letts brings history to life with details about the horses and the people who cared for them during this unmatched turmoil. Many of the Arabian horses at the center today carry the blood of these Polish Arabians rescued in Czechoslovakia by the Americans, and we are honored to hear her discuss the events in more detail.
