  • DescriptionDavid May starts his interview by talking about how his great grandfather would ride mountain horses during his time as sheriff. He also discusses how the mountain horse was, and is still, an easy keeper and how Appalachia would not have been able to survive without these horses. The horses were used for everything and now they have changed into being more of a pleasure horse. May would like to see the different associations come together and see what a special horse they have and to keep it alive.
