Heels Down – Garden Size Bronze Sculpture

by Tammy Tappan


19 in stock

Working 9 months of the year from my studio at the Tryon International Equestrian Center, I am surrounded by world class athletes and their horses.  “Heels Down” captures the powerful, yet fluid motion of the hunter horse while conveying the relationship to the rider by incorporating the stirrup.  This piece would work well at the entry to a farm or an arena!

    “Whether I am working in clay or paint, I like to accurately depict the anatomy of a horse in conjunction with an impressionistic style. This allows viewers to feel the emotions of a horse, yet draw their own conclusions about the narrative being presented.”


This beautiful bronze jumping horse is a limited edition of 19 pieces.  The overall dimensions are:

48″ tall x 60″ long x 26″ wide

The piece weighs approximately 220 lbs and can be installed inside or outdoors.

Originally sculpted to celebrate the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon, NC., the smaller version represented the jumping discipline.  Having successfully sold over half of the edition in the first year, I decided to offer it in a larger version.


I am happy to work with you on custom patinas to commemorate your favorite horse or enhance your landscape.  We can also provide a mock up of any of the bronze pieces in your desired location by sending a photo of the area.  I will photoshop in the desired piece to help with the visualization and final decisions.

Shipping will be calculated separately.  Please contact artist directly for estimate of cost.
