Mandy was inspired by the Arbroath Pageant Procession which took place during 1947-2005. A great spectacle and the sound of horses hooves could be heard coming down the high street. If you had a horse you were in the Pageant.

Horses are being made using existing hobby horse paintings from school projects. Patterns specific to community groups and new horses designed by YOU.
