On your marks, get set, GALLOP!
Organised by the Hamilton Business Improvement District (BID), Wild in Art and the Kilbryde Hospice – the official charity partner for the event – the horses can be seen until 6th September before being auctioned to raise money for the hospice.
The finished designs include a Cameronian solider, a Roman warrior and a design based on the gardens at Chatelherault – There is sure to be something for everyone and we would love to hear which is your favourite.
Our talented artists have taken inspiration from local landmarks in Hamilton as well as local industry, animals and hobbies.
Locations include Hamilton Town centre, Chatelherault Country Park, M&D’s, Strathclyde Park and Peacock cross.
**Notice** – After a trip to the Vets we can now announce ‘The Dukes Garden’ has returned – but can now be found inside the visitor centre at Chatelherault Country Park. **

Who is running the event?
READY STEADY GALLOP! is led by Hamilton BID, working in partnership with Wild in Art, the UK’s leader in the development, management and production of amazing mass appeal public art events.
At the end of the 10 week period the Clydesdale horse sculptures will be auctioned off to raise funds for the local charity The Kilbryde Hospice.
What was the inspiration for the Clydesdale horse sculpture?
The Clydesdale horse sculpture has been inspired by our heritage and proximity to the Clydesdale Valley. We wish to celebrate the role of these mighty animals in the livelihoods of the people who worked the land in Lanarkshire.
We are extremely excited to welcome READY STEADY GALLOP! to Hamilton.
