Canadian Contemporary

Born and raised in southern Alberta, from a ranching and polo family. He is a third generation polo player, but his main passion is working cattle in the old time tradition from the back of a good horse. He raises and trains a few thoroughbreds for polo and ranch work. To date, he has completed 3 life-size or larger bronze sculptures, and is currently working on a fourth: 2 standings figures, one and a half life-size, of the explorer David Thompson and his Meti wife. The first 3 large ones are: “ICU Bronc Twister” monument on the Calgary Stampede grounds. The second is “A Question of Survival,” standing at the Bar U Ranch National Historic Site near Longview, Alberta. The third is a life-size polo horse, “She Gave Her Best,” standing at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.

Rich does lots of work for various polo clubs in the USA and Canada. He has also done several of the awards and trophies for the World Professional Chuckwagon Association, and the Calgary Stampede, as well as for many corporations. His bronzes are in collections around the world, from HRH Prince Charles, to Sylvester Stallone.
