'Steady Boy' - First World War horse and Bristol Fighter - Military Art by Graham Turner "Steady Boy" Ref: SB

A British cavalryman calms his nervous horse, startled by a Bristol Fighter flying overhead, as they advance on the Western Front during the First World War. Graham Turner captures the bond between horse and rider in his sensitive tribute to the millions of horses that lost their lives during this conflict, which would see the old ways of waging war superceded by new technology and warfare on an industrial scale.

" When I was researching the First World War figure for the set of army uniforms stamps I painted for the Royal Mail a few years ago, I came across a photo of a column of British cavalry crossing a trench, and one of the horses so reminded me of my own horse Magic that I vowed that I would one day paint something to try to capture the relationship between man and horse in such extreme circumstances...." Graham Turner

"Steady Boy" - winner of the Roy Nockolds Trophy, voted for by the public, at the 2011 Guild of Aviation Artists annual exhibition.

In July 2016 Graham Turner took part in a two-day commemorative ride on the Somme battlefield, in full cavalry kit, retracing the steps of the only cavalry action to take place during the battle, the charge at High Wood, 14th July 1916.

CLICK HERE to read an article Graham has written for 'Battlefield', the magazine on the Battlefields Trust, about the charge and recounting his own experiences a century later.

'The Great War holds a terrible fascination for me, and my own personal love of horses inevitably makes their involvement in this horrific conflict particularly poignant. I am honoured to be taking part in this commemorative ride, and as we visit the various locations and cemeteries on our route we will remember those whose lives were lost, both human and equine.
