COOL & UNUSUAL ARTWORK?

Would you like to donate a piece of your artwork to raise vital funds to make a positive difference to the working horses, donkeys and mules around the world, and help the families they support? We are particularly keen to add value to the existing collection with the focus of the exhibition displaying a broad spectrum of art and crafts of working equines from the UK, overseas and particularly working equines from the countries we work in. Artwork may include paintings, pencil drawings, sculpture, pottery, local arts and crafts, quilting, etc. The more unusual the better!
