The spirit and power of the English hunter is captured here in a new limited edition bronze by David Geenty, one of Europe’s leading equine sculptors. Captured on the move—alert, proud, bold, ready for anything—this is a horse we would all like to ride to hounds, and to look at every day, recalling red letter days out hunting, or planning more good days to come, or remembering a special hunter and a good friend . . .
Forward going, but not hot: strong yet with quality: he is the quintessential hunter. Within that handsome head and body you feel there is all the good sense, energy and athleticism to tackle an Irish bank, or a big English hedge, with enough ‘blood’ and turn of foot to stay with hounds all day across Leicestershire, and remain sound and smart enough to be out twice a week with a smart Gloucestershire pack … here is the hunter personified. If you could find his kind, you would buy him! Geenty knows him, inside and out.
All who understand the special place, in our history and our psyche, of the horse in general and the hunter in particular, will covet this impressive bronze. Geenty is an international wildlife sculptor whose eye for the horse is highly regarded (his work is exhibited in the acclaimed Kentucky Museum of Racing History, among others), and this bronze reaffirms his reputation.
It will be the showpiece of any room, spotlit on a plinth, or on the mantelpiece or dining table, coveted by sportsmen and connoisseurs alike. The work is substantial, weighing 2.3kg, and measures 360mm (14in) wide. The edition is limited to 50, and each piece is numbered and arrives in a smart box for presentation, making an impressive and highly discerning gift which will be treasured for all time.
