Could you design a sculpture to feature in our World Horse Trail?

We're inviting members of the public to submit designs to be in with the chance of having their very own creation featured in our World Horse Trail. There will be two competitions - one for those aged 16 and over and one for those under the age of 16.

Designs from entrants aged 16 and over will be shortlisted (closing date of Monday 18th March) and the winner will be chosen by World Horse Welfare Patron and Olympic gymnast Suzanne Dando-Reynolds BEM. Suzanne says: 

"I am delighted to be judging the World Horse Welfare World Horse Trail competition. The 2016 trail was a huge success with some amazing designs on our sculptures. This is a fun and innovative way to help raise vital funds for the work we do at World Horse Welfare, not just here at home but throughout some of the poorest countries in the world. So, put your creative hat on, pick up that paint brush and help a horse in need today! Good luck."

The winning design will be painted onto the sculpture by a studio artist and the finished piece will feature in the Borough Trail.

Designs from entrants under the age of 16 will be shortlisted (closing date of Thursday 28th March) and the best entries judged by YouTube star This Esme. The winning design will be painted onto the maquette by a studio artist and the finished piece will star in our Farm Trail.
