A herd of horses are galloping into Newmarket from 8 July to 22 September 2019!

The AHT, local and national artists, local businesses, organisations and community groups are joining together to create this free, fun and inspiring event in our home town, Newmarket.

The horses are all fabulously different, designed and created by talented artists using the same theme ‘What do horses mean to you?’. Some pieces are large in size and others you might need to look a bit harder to find, equally some might not be what you are expecting…

There are 17 to find and at each one you will notice a letter, collect all the letters and unscramble them to find the phrase and send it to us to enter our prize draw!

Explore the Saddle Up Art Trail!

Enjoy the Trail as a family, with friends or absorb yourself in the artwork and admire the talented artists and sculptors involved.

Discover where the horses have landed in Newmarket by following the Trail map. From Monday 8 July 2019, you will be able to download the map from here or pick up a copy from Tindalls, Palace House Museum, the Leisure Centre, Rutland Arms Hotel, Newmarket Town Council or Heath Court Hotel .

We need to help the young view and appreciate art by making it accessible, and not always in galleries. Art Trails do all of this.

Art Trails give people, both residents and visitors, stimulating art works to see and they engage people. They also encourage people to walk areas they don’t normally see.

Putting art into a space, changes that space and puts a new perspective on the environment.
