Really interesting and powerfully executed figures of horses. Loved that they provided plaques with facts about the different types of horses. Worth a "look-see"!

Really enjoyed the sculptured horses...explanatory plaques explained facts about the Morgan, Pinto, Quarter, Arabian and Thoroughbred horses. Great photo op too. Friendly clerk at Info Center gave us lots of good info and suggested trip along the Billy the Kid Scenic Loop up to Lincoln.

Great outdoor place to walk around. You can actually walk among these beautiful larger than life horse statures. Horses are in active form and you can feel their energy.

The artist is amazing and did such a great job! I just kept standing there staring at the sculpture wishing I could climb up and ride it!

Love the large sculptures of the horses. Wonderful past history of New Mexico. You can spend 2 hours here.

Beautiful statues. Love the accuracy of the different breeds. Easy walking paths between the statues. Benches to sit on with views of the horses.

Great stop and walk in the park like setting. The horses are beautiful. Amazing when you realize some of the statues are only supported by one anchor point of one leg -- neat structural engineering support system.

Fun to walk around and enjoy these beautiful sculptures. Be sure to read about each breed. And don't climb on the horses!

I took photos of every sculpture-beautiful depiction of many breeds. Nice landscaping and even though it was hot we enjoyed the walk.
