It is important to remember the horses that were sent, from NZ, overseas in WWI.
As a tribute I handpainted poppies on a dress, and the words 'Honour' and 'Respect', and also on a horse riding helmet (see photos).
(NB: the photos of horses are of our family race horses - to show our connection to horses)
I was interviewed at a local race meeting in October about Armistice Day.
There is also a photo of a RSA memorial for horses.
