The Resting Horse sculpture was created in 2016 for my second Chelsea Flower Show. I haven’t modelled a horse for some time. My mother Lorne McKean is one of the premier polo sculptors in the UK, so I feel I have a lot to live up to. But I did enjoy doing the Resting Horse sculpture. I’ve always loved horses and I think they’re one of the most beautiful creatures. They’re kind, and it’s difficult to find an animal that has given so much in the service of people. I tried to capture their gentle happiness in their natural state in this sculpture.

When I model animals I try where possible to find examples from life. In this case, I used many, many photos. They helped to show the animal’s anatomical features, the way its skin lies over its muscles or alters its shape, and their different poses and attitudes.

– Your resting horse sculpture raises money for rescued farm animals –

The Resting Horse sculpture is part of my Charities Range. 10% of the proceeds go to the All Creatures Great & Small animal sanctuary. The sanctuary is based in Wales. It operates a programme of rehabilitation and re-homing of injured, abused, unwanted and orphaned farm animals and pets.

If you would like to commission your own horse sculpture, or have an idea for another animal sculpture, I have some information about bespoke sculptures and pricing on my commissions page.

Suitable for indoor display and sized for the window-sill or mantlepiece. The Resting Horse sculpture is a perfect animal sculpture gift for a special occasion.
