I've been following the progress in wonderment since the 1st post.

As for you question about rider's position, I'm thinking that her legs are a little too high up the horse's barrel and she is a little to far off the saddle. If you can imagine her in a sitting position, her knees would be at too much of an angle.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Absolutely amazing! This is just fantastic!

**I must not forget to thank the difficult horses, who made my life miserable, but who were better teachers than the well-behaved school horses who raised no problems.**

I simply love your work. It's such a pleasure to look at this horse and rider. The horse looks, well, he looks happy.

Thank you tinyliny for the compliment.
Given the horse is part of a memorial sculpture ( which in isolation can be a sad thing )I wanted the first impression of children who viewed the sculpture to be posative and happy. I made an effort so the horse would not look scary or dangerous which might come to mind as parents explain the reason for this sculpture to thier children. Jaffa (the sculpture horse ) is happy and non threatening. It will be at a height that children can touch , which I think is critical for them to enjoy this work.There is too much sadness in the world for me to add to it.
Thank you again for your interest.
