Horses in Pastel
Pastel on pastel card.
Sunders Artist ‘Gulliver’ is a 16’3 Irish Sports Horse by ‘The Artist’. It was important to his owner, Kate, that we captured his 'lovely nature' in his portrait. This rounded, softer pose showed his gentleness as well as his natural good looks.
In her own words:
'Gulliver was aged 10 years at the time that this beautiful portrait was completed. My search for him took almost a year because I was looking for a very special horse. Gulliver is on working livery with the Light Cavalry, so alongside helping me to improve my riding, he earns his keep by taking part in military parades. Because of this arrangement I needed a horse that was not only right for me but also ticked some extra boxes! Gulliver’s temperament is perfect for the job, he’s clever and he’s not easily scared, so he didn’t take long to adapt to men with swords and a new style of riding…he looks absolutely gorgeous in his military kit!
Gulliver has helped me overcome my nerves and I’m looking forward to a long future together which will hopefully take us into the dressage arena and maybe (if I’m brave enough) around a course of show jumps!'
