HORSES were the theme for an open garden with a difference on Sunday and the equine influence was even visible from the sky.
Wendy Carins opened her property Phoenix Ridge, Youngtown, to raise money for the Holman Clinic at Launceston General Hospital.
She estimated more than 500 people attended and she raised about $4000 for the clinic.
The day included Devonshire tea, a barbecue, produce and secondhand stalls, plus the chance to say hello to the horses and other animals on show.
Ms Carins said her late mother and late brother had both been treated at the clinic and this was the third year of the annual event in support of the cancer centre.
Ms Carins said she had ridden horses for most of her life and bred Arabian horses at her property.
She has even built an ``Arabian horse garden'' at the property from stone, white roses and other plants, that takes the shape of a prancing Arabian horse when viewed from above.
