This weekend (Friday 11th June) is the unveiling of the incredible life-sized Arborfield Horses sculpture, beautifully created by Amy Goodman and commissioned by Crest Nicholson.
The exciting new artwork has arrived in its permanent home in Arborfield Green, ready for the unveiling this weekend. Arborfield Green is a new community situated in the former location of the Remount Depot and Horse Infirmary, where the British Army cared for and trained horses between 1887 and 1942.
Each of the horses are significant, and the first – known as Icarus – has branded hoofs with the date 1918, signifying the role of the horse in the war. The middle sculpture is of a Sports Horse Mare following after her yearling, which is the third and final horse.
Regarding the project, Goodman has said that the horses are a magnificent tribute to “the past, present, and future in an equine installation”. Set upon the Nine Mile Ride Extension roundabout in Arborfield Green, the horses will welcome visitors and residents into the development.
