On Wednesday 16th October, Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne,  unveiled a new life-sized bronze of the Household Cavalry horse Sefton at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) in North Mymms, Hertfordshire.

The statue of Sefton is sited outside the College’s Teaching and Research Centre, standing on the footprint of the former Sefton Equine Hospital.  The horse suffered terrible injuries in the Hyde Park bombing of July 1982 in which four men and seven horses died. In the aftermath of the bombing, as the most severely injured horse, his story of recovery captured the nation’s hearts and the horse came to symbolise the resilience that is characteristic of the armed forces.
