The first two of a set of three paintings of the Best of British horses, to mark the BHS's 60th anniversary are due to be unveiled at Badminton.

The triptych of paintings by renowned equine artist Nikki Moore feature great British bred or trained horses and ponies.

The first two panels feature sports and performance horses and working horses. The third will feature breeds and types.

The first two panels will be unveiled at the BHS's Badminton stand - Number 111 - on May 4, at about 4.30pm. The third panel will be unveiled at Burghley.

The horses and ponies on the panels are not all champions. Some are unsung heroes who go about their work on a daily basis, rounding up sheep, pulling barges or working for the Riding for the Disabled Association.

The 60 prints of each panel will be sold through and on the stand at Badminton.

The originals will auctioned at the Animal Health Trust Awards in the autumn.
