Seamus and Rupert on the set of Poldark

Here are Rupert and Seamus, two Atkinson Action Horses, on the set of Poldark. 

Seamus is ridden by Aidan Turner (Ross) and Rupert by Warren Clarke (Charles Poldark). Unfortunately Tzan, the horse being ridden by Kyle Soller (Francis), is hidden from view.

Rupert is 18 and is pure Irish Draught. When I spoke to Mark Atkinson of Atkinson Action Horses earlier in the year, he told me that Rupert is one of their best horses. He's even worked at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, where he was ridden on stage by the lead singer in Falstaff.

In case you missed them, here are our earlier articles on  Seamus and Poldark's Horses but, for more on Rupert, check out the video below.
