About the Editor

Heavy Horse World is published and edited by Diana Zeuner MCIJ, a professional writer and journalist who has been closely involved with heavy horses for over 30 years.

Her interest began with their introduction to the Weald & Downland Living Museum, Singleton, West Sussex, where her late husband, Chris Zeuner OBE MA, was the Museum Director. He introduced working horses to demonstrate their importance to rural communities and help interpret the museum’s historic building exhibits. Diana has also managed the heavy horse stables at the museum.

Heavy Horse World was founded in 1987 and quickly established itself as the ‘trade magazine’ for the heavy horse sector. In 1998 Diana produced and edited the Working Horse Manual, now in its second edition, and regarded as the best beginner’s guide to the subject in the UK today. In 2004 she wrote Heavy Horses, a concise all-round introduction to heavy horses, also now in its second edition. Both books can be bought online on this website.

Diana has just stepped down from editing the Association of Independent Museums’ bi-monthly magazine, which she did for just under 39 years, and she also produces a twice-yearly magazine for the Weald & Downland Living Museum.  For the museum she researched and produced Building History, marking its 40th anniversary, which tells the story of the museum’s development. She has also written articles, exhibition and display texts and contributed to other specialist magazines.  Her interests include walking, bird-watching, gardening, rural history and heritage, and of course, heavy horses!
