The memorial is to commemorate the thousands of horses mules and donkey which took part helping man in the terrible conditions of the 1914-1918 War.   The mare stands motionless, her head hung in poignant remembrance. The silhouette, shape and body language, reflecting the exhaustion and tragedy. The only movement is in the tail, caught in a slight gust of wind, giving a sign of life and hope for the future, that their sacrifice was not in vain. The statue will stand on the roundabout near Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire.  A larger than life bronze horse standing on an inscribed Portland Stone plinth. But in essence it will be much more than that, and will afford the opportunity to create and expand on-going fundraising activities based around the Memorial and its lasting legacy for the nation.
