Why Are Some Girls Horse Crazy

WORT’s Jan Miyasaki interviews Professor of Sociology Jean O’Malley Halley, author of Horse Crazy: Girls and the Lives of Horses. The book is a deep dive into the relationships girls have with horses. Why do girls like horses? Why do they obsess over horses whether or not they actually have access to them? How has the relationship with horses changed since they have become companions rather than a mode of transportation? And why do we revere horses but not other animals? The interview takes a brief look at the issues of this little-explored phenomenon.
