These paintings are all worked in oil on linen and show the wonderful horses and young troopers of The Household Cavalry. There are two regiments - The Lifeguards and The Blues and Royals and they are always on parade for any major ceremonial event in this country. Nobody does ceremony and pageant like these soldiers. In the summer they come up to Norfolk for their annual holidays and as part of this the horses are taken onto the beach to exercise and have some fun. To see the horses and their riders at full gallop, without saddles and totally free to run is a magical sight. They run into the sea and mess around like everyone does on holiday!
