Horse Power

Ready Steady Gallop! celebrates the heavy horses that used to be seen on farms all around Lanarkshire.

There are 25 full-size sculptures dotted around the town of Hamilton and in the nearby Chatelherault and Strathclyde Country Parks. Painted by local artists, the horses are on display until 6 September, after which they will be auctioned off in aid of Kilbryde Hospice.

Scotland Outdoors editor Don Currie interviews two of the artists and asks residents what they think of the scheme.

See the website here for more information, or download the app to see where the horses are.
