Schleese Saddlery, long known as a significant player in the dressage saddle market, and specializing in saddles made specifically for women, has now ventured into the hunter/jumper market with its revolutionary Jeté saddle.

Images of memorial © Daisy Bunn www.honeybunnphotography.com Douglas Bunn (1928-2009) was the founder of the All England Jumping Course, and one of the biggest innovators in the sport of showjumping. Now a memorial sculpture featuring Douglas on his most famous horse is going to be unveiled during the Hickstead Derby meeting. The sculpture – in the form of a ‘relief’ – has been created by famous artist Philip Blacker, who is a friend of the Bunn family. It is the first time Philip has worked with this type of art form, which is somewhat apt for a tribute to Douglas Bunn, one of equestrianism’s great pioneers. “The art of relief sculpture has rather fallen out of use in recent years and so I was keen to do something that was unusual,” says Philip. “Making a relief on this scale was not without its challenges, partly because of the foreshortening effect of the horse and rider coming towards one at such an acute angle. I am pleased with the result now it has been cast in stone.” Philip has created some of the most iconic sculptures in equestrianism, including life-size statues of Red Rum, Desert Orchid, Best Mate and Persian Punch
