Women and Horses Revisited: Charles Rumph Photography
June 3, 2023 – September 17, 2023
National Sporting Library & Museum

The National Sporting Library & Museum (NSLM) is excited to announce the exhibition and silent auction of photography by Charles W. Rumph (American, 1932–2019).

Women & Horses Revisited: Charles Rumph Photography, is a reinterpretation of Rumph’s 1996 landmark solo exhibition, Women & Horses: A Celebration, held at the International Museum of the Horse in Lexington, Kentucky. It was the culmination of a photographic project in which he documented women in the American equestrian world and the wide variety of roles they had come to embody at all ages—from enthusiasts to professionals.

The exhibitions offers a comprehensive and evocative view of the 1990s horse industry. Some are quirky and others gritty, yet all of the photographs resonate with the talent and determination of the women who inspired Rumph’s vision.
