I have wondered why the black horse at Blackhorse Rd station is shying. I found myself at it last night, guided there along and by the full moonlit paths of Walthamstow. On the way home my nerves were teased by the sound of clattering hooves on tarmac, and were the darknesses, the shadows of the street lights, really summoning themselves in the form of horses?
The artists responsible for this sculpture are, David McFall RA, and Trata Dreschna. There is a very informative web site dedicated to David McFall on which there is a page specifically about, Shying Horse.
