To celebrate this Kevis House Gallery in Petworth is holding an exhibition of contemporary equestrian art between 6th July and 28th August. The exhibition will feature a range of works by some of the leading artists in the field.

The pictures will depict a wide range of equestrian sports, capturing the speed of polo and horse racing, the elegance of dressage, and the spectacle of carriage driving. Among the action filled works are individual studies of horses, jockeys and polo players.
