Leap of Faith Light Horse Figurine

After escaping the failed Gallipoli campaign of 1915 men of the Australian Light Horse, who had served at ANZAC as infantry, were reunited with their trusty Waler mounts. For most the war would continue in the deserts against the Ottoman Empire. But for the men and mounts of the 4th and 13th Light Horse the war would take them to the war-torn and bloodied Western Front.

Unlike the open deserts of the Saini and Palestine in the Great War of 1914-1918, the Western Front, with its endless trenches and barbed wire entanglements was generally unsuited to mounted offensive operations. Yet the Australian Light Horse served great distinction.

This unique 380mm x 120mm x 330mm limited edition cold cast bronze figurine honours these brave men and Waler mounts, and the pivotal role they played in the final great Allied push – the 100 Days Offensive.

In 1916 the 13th Light Horse regiment, and two squadrons from the 4th, joined the diggers in France. The men and horses were busied in reserve escorting prisoners and ferrying messages, awaiting the breakthrough that would clear the way to the open country beyond German lines. Their moment arrived in 1918. Commander of the Australian Corps, General Sir John Monash unleashed his mounted troops as part of his great offensive. "Here at last,” he said, "was a chance for bold mounted tactics.”

The speed and daring of the light horsemen at the vanguard of the push menaced the German rear-guard and their audacious reconnaissance supplied Monash the intelligence needed to confidently steer his forces to victory.

Gen Monash said of the Light Horse: "These troops more than justified their employment by bold forward reconnaissance, and energetic pressure upon the enemy rear-guards.”

Share their memory with this beautiful figurine limited to only 5,000 castings. Includes a numbered certificate of authenticity.

Shipping & Delivery

We do not offer Free Shipping. It’s important to note that due to ordering from some specific suppliers, our delivery times may vary slightly between products. Since we don’t hold stock ourselves, we do rely on third parties. Occasionally they make mistakes meaning a product we thought was in stock may have just run out — in which case we’ll let you know just as soon as we can and explain your options.

Also, the delivery times are our best estimates only. Many things can delay your order, including freight delays, bad weather, customer location and the local post/courier service. If we do know there is a delay, we’ll email you as soon as we can with the updated delivery time.

If your order is in stock and we process the charges to your credit card, it will ship within five business days from the date of your order.  We will send you tracking information within 24 hours of your order leaving the warehouse to the e-mail address your provide when checking out.  If you do not receive tracking information from us within six business days of your order, feel free to follow up with us. 

All items dispatched via courier have an implicit 'Authority to Leave' at the customers'  shipping address, unless the customer has indicated otherwise at the time of ordering.  

Most commercial courier and postal companies we use to send customers' packages will in most instance leave your parcel at the property / address indicated on the order, in a safe, concealed location if it hasn't already been accepted by a resident. At times certain courier drivers may leave a note for the customer with a contact number to call and organise a suitable time for re-delivery or an address of the depot where the package will be left in order for the customer to pick up, if the driver could not find a safe concealed location at the property. This is at the discretion of the courier driver.

In cases where the customers' package/parcel is left at the collection depot and the customer has not picked it up by the due date indicated or the customer has not organised a suitable time for re-delivery, the default course of action is for the item to be sent back to the sender. If this occurs, all returned packages, will be subject to a 20% (of item price) restocking fee. Any subsequent re-shipping charges will also be borne by the customer.    

So while we do our best to make sure your order arrives in full and on time, if you absolutely need something guaranteed to arrive on time, like your partner’s wedding anniversary gift, then we recommend you allow yourself enough time before placing an order.

We reserve the right to amend or add to these Terms & Conditions.
