I prepared for sketching at the Royal Windsor Horse Show this weekend with Monika Zagrobelna’s really helpful blog post on how to draw horses.

Capturing these gorgeous beauties from life is a very different matter, but I fixed my eye on the prize and let the pen ride the page.

The ones that look like big dogs are Shetland Ponies. The others I blame on the champagne.

The tea tent was a gentle trot in comparison!

It was all so exciting that I forgot to sketch the queen!
