“Arctic Soul, owned by the Soul Syndicate, is now 17, having come out of racing as a 6-year-old in Ireland. I got the ride on him when he was an 8-year-old and we went from strength to strength as a partnership, going from Novice (British Eventing) to what is now 4 star in a year! ‘Spike’ did his first 5 star at Badminton as an 11-year-old in 2014 and has been back every year since with three top 7 placings. He has also been in the top 5 at Burghley twice. He won the British Open championships in 2017, was 9th at the 2015 European championships and then part of the gold medal winning team at the 2018 World Equestrian Games at Tryon in USA.”
“Spike is renowned for his speed and boldness cross country, has always been so clever and cat-like. He is an extremely special, incredible horse and means the world to all of us at Teamtatt.” – Gemma Tattersall (pictured)

On the rare occasions Charles Church is able to exhibit, his critically acclaimed shows sell out well in advance.
The Prince of Wales described Charles as a remarkable artist, with a “unique sensitivity and profound understanding of his subject matter.” Charles Church’s pictures of horses, landscapes and country life are highly coveted and much sought after the globe over. He has been commissioned to paint more than 60 Group/Grade 1 winning racehorses, including world champion and Arc de Triomphe winner Zarkava, Australian champion, Fastnet Rock and the Epsom and Irish Derby winner, Harzand.
Born in 1970 and brought up in Northumberland in the Northeast of England, the Dorset-based artist’s patrons include HM the Sultan of Oman, HH the Aga Khan, Sheikh Fahad Al Thani, William Farrish, John Magnier, Lady Lloyd-Webber and Maria Niarchos-Gouaze.
