My love of horses never tires and now I live next to a livery, so I have endless horses to watch and study. I am often found in the middle of the field with my camera or sketch book, sometimes in the pouring rain thanks to the English weather! So my equestrian bronze sculptures are going to increase – I hope!
There are not many thoroughbred horses in the fields around here, but I had the lucky fortune to have the opportunity to study a thoroughbred in a studio nearby which was great. He was held in the studio, so we could really observe how he moved and held himself. As are many thoroughbreds, this was an ex-race horse who never won a race so was discarded or retired! You could just see how he had the power and energy to move but with such grace as he trotted up and down the road!
