– 1/4 scale maquette of quarter horse stallion Country Bay Berry.
The Spin at Liberty is a 1/4 scale maquette of a quarter horse stallion, Country Bay Berry, performing the reining horse spin (at liberty). I was so inspired watching this stallion spin in
his reining routine: He literally gets in a ball and spins like a top!
I wanted to capture that movement in bronze and portray the feeling of “roundness” throughout the piece. Country Bay Berry is an amazing stallion with a sweet personality—he even smiles when he is performing.
I have sculpted that smile and his big soft eyes as well.
