A Real Pony Race for a Bridle is a mixed media installation exhibited as part of the group exhibition Summer Collection ’97, for which artists were invited to respond to artefacts housed in the gallery’s permanent collection. Inspired by a 19th century poster advertising a pony race in a local park, Best organised a gymkhana in Burgess Park, South London. The work comprises material from the day’s events including video documentation of the races, an album of photographs, pin-board displays and the original poster. The work demonstrates the artist’s ongoing collaborative and cross-disciplinary practice involving the participation of local groups and communities.
 
Exhibited as part of Summer Collection ’97, curated by students on the MA Fine Arts Administration and Curatorship course at Goldsmiths College.
