The gift of horses may come to us as children or later in life.

It doesn’t matter how it happens, but when it happens, the gift is permanent and irrevocable. Lightning strikes, but in a joyful way.

Children may see a horse in a parade, horses grazing in a field from the backseat of their parents car, or someone riding a pony in a favorite TV show. Next, they start picking up pencils or crayons and drawing ponies. It doesn’t matter the color- purple ones, blue ones. Pink ones. Pure joy. And before long, the child becomes a “horse crazy kid”.

We love young equestrian art because it is often where the love of horses is first expressed; it is accessible to any child with a crayon, marker or pencil.

We invite you to join us and to celebrate the art of the horse.
