Stunning photography exhibition helps Redwings

Photographer Stephen DeHavilland is showcasing a selection of his stunning equine images in Royston, near Cambridge, and will be donating 10% of sales from the exhibition to Redwings.

Mr DeHavilland’s exhibition is taking place now until Friday 5th May at the Curwens Art Gallery in Royston High Street.

He has also generously gifted a beautiful photograph of a Friesian horse - which looks just like our Adoption Star Maya - to our annual Art Sale, which will run at our Aylsham Visitor Centre over two weekends, from Friday 7th April to Monday 10th April, and Friday 14th April to Monday 17th April.

Anyone still wishing to donate artwork to the sale, including paintings, sketches, photos and sculptures, can do so until Friday 24th March by emailing

Mr DeHavilland took up horse riding having been inspired by the 2012 London Olympics and decided to turn his love of horses and photography into his profession. He now travels around the UK and Europe capturing images of horses and riders, including the stunning photograph above.

Having lived in north London as a young man, he said he was aware of the work of Ada Cole Memorial Stables before it became part of Redwings Horse Sanctuary in 2005. “There is so much neglect and awful things that happen to horses; something needs to be done about it,” he said. “Thankfully there are people and organisations like Redwings that give their time and energy to help these beautiful animals.

“Being able to donate and support the charity through my photography seems a natural thing to do and one I’m pleased I can help with.”
