DANCING THOROUGHBRED – Standing Horse

My love of horses never tires.    I now live next to a livery, so I have endless horses to watch and study in a beautiful Dorset valley. I am often found in the middle of the field with my camera or sketch book.   Often it is pouring with rain thanks to the English weather!

I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to study a thoroughbred in a studio. The horse was held in the studio which allowed us to observe how he moved and held himself. As are many thoroughbreds, this was an ex-race horse who never won a race so was retired early.  You could just see how he had the power and energy to move with grace as he trotted up and down the road, almost on tip toes!

In this bronze equestrian sculpture I wanted to capture the bounce and energy of these horses. I have exaggerated the fine legs, and the posture is one of elegance showing his agility, speed and spirit! Thoroughbreds have two unusual characteristics, which does make them well suited for speed. Firstly, their long necks which move with their front legs to propel them forward. Secondly, their hind leg bends and straighten in an almost vertical line which also helps them move very fast.

This bronze equestrian sculpture shows a thoroughbred standing, but he is not relaxed.   His muscles are tense, he is on edge and struggling to be still!

I would say it’s ideal on a coffee table, under a lamp or on a window sill with the light shining between the legs.  The bronze can be cast in bronze or bronze resin as a limited edition.
