It has been along time since I have been here to see this. I took my children to see this when they were small. They loved it.

Photos can not do justice to this horse. At first, you see him from a distance but you can not really appreciate the beauty or size untill you are standing beside of him. It is just amazing. It is a wonderful photo opp. as you can walk under the horse or just touch him. I walked out in 25 degree,... More

A must see if you are in the area. There are only two of these I think and Grand Rapids has one of them. Just a magnificent sight.

At first glimpse I gasp at the size and beauty. This has to be the largest statue of a horse in the world. Look at the size of the human in the attached picture and you will get an idea of the size and beauty of this horse. The 6 foot man is at the front leg.

Sorry I am not a huge art person so I will not give this any more stars than average. It is cool to look at but it is a really big horse. Go for the rest of the facility enjoy the view of the horse but not sure I would ever tell anyone you have just got to see this... More
