We were on a girls ( moms & daughters) weekend and drove past this. It is an amazing picture spot. The only thing is is its a little hard to find parking for the pic.

Amazing scuplture. It's a bit of a walk from downtown or the visitor centre. More horse sculptures in the adjacent park.

My daughters and I spent a peaceful hour reading about some of the leading members of the horse world. The horse statues are incredible. I was surprised by how peaceful it was in spite of being adjacent to a busy street.

We loved seeing all of the thoroughbred statues. The statues of the mama's and babies were the best. Some pretty sketchy people hanging around so I wouldn't go after dark.

There are bronze horse statues running. A fountain and a small park with a play scape. Fun for all ages. A great place for a photo op.
