One of Simon's stunning personal projects that developed into a series of amazing images showing the heavy horses at liberty in the surf. Images are available for licensing and prints can be bought through his shop.
"Every so often there is a moment of pure self-indulgence. There was a painting I saw once that had horses coming out of the surf. Not an uncommon painting. I wanted to find a way of doing the same but with heavy horses. The bigger the better for me when it comes to the equine community! I contacted Annie Rose of the Heavy Horse Riding Centre in Cumbria. She is an amazing lady with an equally amazing passion for the heavy horses. We chatted, enthused, got excited, and had an amazing amount of fun. If it hadn't been for Annie I wouldn't have had the joy of creating this amazing body of work." - Simon Palmer
