Horses in art

November 18, 2009

Lately I have been feeling like I want to learn how to horseback ride. I had a chance at a lesson when I was little, but didn’t have the right shoes and so was stuck watching my friend trot around in circles, her hair blowing in the wind. Many years later in California, I went on a trail ride in the woods but its not the same as a real lesson. I have always thought horses were beautiful and incredible creatures and lets face it, equestrian fashion never goes out of style.

Lately it seems that equestrian art is becoming a trend, and I am in awe of these horse puppets for the West End play, “War Horse.” Kind of reminds me of┬áthese amazing driftwood sculptures by Heather Jansch.
