Pictures from EHC 2018

The Equine History Collective and W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Library look forward to welcoming attendees to the second annual Equine History Conference at Cal Poly Pomona in just over a month! Last year’s conference was a lot of fun, featuring not only fantastic papers and conversation, but also Cal Poly Pomona’s very own student mariachi ensemble, Mariachi Los Broncos. We’ve put together this album from least year, showing some of the speakers and activities:

As a reminder, registration for EHC 2019 ends October 30; if you want to pre-order a shirt or tote, please let us know by October 24 to ensure delivery at the conference! We’ll soon be previewing the paper abstracts for this year’s conference, so stay tuned!

#EqHist2018: Guest Staring Mariachi Los Broncos


     Mariachi Los Broncos was one of the first college mariachi groups in the United States. After a two-decade hiatus, a new generation of Mariachi Los Broncos de Pomona took the stage in January 2016 under the direction of ethnomusicologist Dr. Jessie M. Vallejo. Mariachi Los Broncos de Pomona is Cal Poly Pomona’s premiere mariachi ensemble. The ensemble studies a variety of Mexican musical genres (e.g., son jalisciense, ranchera, corrido, bolero ranchero, huapango, etc.). They will serenade us Friday during lunch
