|Welcome to Equine Art. Horses have captivated
the spirit and inspired some of the most beautiful works of art throughout the history of
man. Look to the wonderful cave paintings of the American Indians or the elegant
sculptures of the Chinese Tang Dynasty for some early creations. These ancient works are
truly breathtaking examples of equestrian art.
Many cultures have had their own wonderful styles of depicting the noble equine and the
fascination continues today for contemporary artists. There is something about the
strength and grace of a horse and it's ability to form such a binding union with mankind,
which cannot fail to inspire beauty. Equestrian art is stronger than ever in this country
and can be seen in some form in almost every community across the United States.
