The Development Trust’s Clydesdale Horse Project is progressing well. On 13 January, the Development Trust visited the Police Scotland Mounted Unit in Stewarton to undertake research for the project. We are still actively applying for grants and seeking donations to contribute to the success of the project. We wish to create a magnificent sculpture, celebrating Lanark’s heritage and historical links to the Clydesdale Horse breed. We’re also creating an educational booklet about the history of the Clydesdale. If you would like to get involved, please get in touch!
