These pictures of the Casino horses were passed to us by Liz Swann.

Both were taken outside the Casino in the late 80's.

I really feel these horses were a part of my heritage and childhood and I was devastated to hear the sad news. Having worked for the past several years in the candyfloss and donut kiosk beside the horses, I have seen so many people enjoy them. Lets hope we can keep the paddling pool on the beach so another piece of canvey's history isn't destroyed.

I remember them well. My parents owned the newsagents next to the Casino throughout the 80s and I rode them lots as a child. As I got older I obviously didn't (a teenager on a coin operated horse is not a good look) but walked past them pretty much daily. They were a part of the seafront and it's a shame to hear they're gone. Concrete Barge... Seafront Horses... my childhood is evaporating!
