Myers is traveling the United States on a fellowship to learn different styles of horse care and small-farm management.

"We would like horse owners to see how other people are doing similar horse keeping in other countries," Ruskell said. "They can learn from her and she can learn from us. She has a long career and we want people to take advantage of her knowledge."
Among the things she plans to discuss are horse grazing behavior, mud management through vegetation and property planning.
According to her website,, Myers has been involved in the horse industry for 35 years and she has published several books about horse care. She earned a master's degree on equine studies by the University of Wales in the early 1990s.
