Yes, the details are what make this so appealing. For example, the slight twist of the rider's spine and the uplift of the face, all this makes is to natural and in action, instead of what one would expect of a heavy metal sculpture; static and dead.

Jake and DAi and TinyLiny. It makes me very happy when people that know horse stuff (you guys...not me) say Ive made a reasonable 'go' at this project. It was an honour to be asked to make this memorial and I hope that no-one will be greatly dissapointed by my efforts.

Thank you for the kind words!
Hi everyone, well I finally installed the work at the Shepparton pony Club.
I didnt attend the opening as I considered it a personal matter with Taylors Familty , friends and equine community.

Below is a link to a newspaper aricle that covered the unveiling. I am told it was a beautiful ceremony and that the sculpture was well recieved by all.

Sculpture stands in honour of Taylor - Shepparton -

Below are some images from the ceremony that I have selected .
They are courtesy of PCAV North East Zone and kind permission by Taylor's parents.
