War Horse Memorial Sculpture Welcomed to Waikato

A big bronze war-horse statue, set to become a national monument, has been welcomed to the Waikato prior to its official unveiling on Armistice Day, 11 November 2017.

The memorial work created by Otaki artist Matt Gauldie is a tribute to the thousands of horses and troopers of the New Zealand Mounted Rifles who served in the First World War, and earlier.
Noeline Jeffries, president of the War Horse Board, told guests at the special preview last week that the horse had been given the name Gunner. 
Once installed the statue will be given to the people of Hamilton. See full story: War Horse statue welcomed to the Waikato
