How would you like to be involved in groundbreaking research concerning the horse-human relationship? Do you enjoy talking about horses and the experiences you have had with them? Would you like to discuss the relationship you have with your horse, exploring different ways that you learn from and about your horse? If so, then I invite you to take Tapestry Institute Horse-Human Relationship Program's comprehensive online survey concerning the bond between horses and humans. By taking this survey, you become a part of new, exciting research about the horse-human relationship that has never been conducted before. Unless you fill out optional contact information, the survey is anonymous; we do not know who submitted any particular set of answers. However, if you would like to be cited by name in any publications that result from this research or at the presentation of the results at results at the Voice of the Horse Conference, being held June 30-July 1, 2007, at Iowa State University, fill out the optional contact information at the end of the survey so we can notify you if any of your comments are to be used.
The survey is located at http://www.tapestryinstitute.org/survey.html . We are trying to reach as many people as possible, so please tell everyone you know about this survey. Feel free to post this email to discussion lists and forums (where allowed) and send it to anyone you know who is involved with horses. Spread the word at your barn, riding club, or any other horse activities in which you are involved. If you know someone who does not have Internet access, then feel free to print off the survey for them and have them mail the completed survey to "Survey, Tapestry Institute, P.O. Box 97,
Harrison, NE 69346."
Thank you for taking the survey and becoming a part of history in the exploration of the horse-human relationship!
