This portrait as commissioned by Anthea’s German parents at Dublin Horse Show. Felix and Anthea have had the most amazing journey together the last 12 years. Firstly in Germany and then they both went to boarding school in England where Felix also accompanied.  They have now found their home in Ireland where Anthea is in College and Felix is loving the green pastures and competing. Anthea said “We’ve now found our home in Ireland and couldn’t be happier. We grew up together and formed an unshakeable bond. This kind of strong connection between a horse and rider is rare and I feel very lucky to share it with Felix”
