“The Horse is just one exhibit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

FMG has many statues and works of Art. My favorite time at the horse, was when I snapped a pic of my husband standing beneath the front hoof!

“Beautiful and impressive scuplture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is the most impressive piece at the gardens. I've seen it many times, and it never ceases to impress me. Not only is it very large, but it is very well done....there's a commanding presence that this horse exudes, and it's beautiful. There's also a wonderful green space around it for children to play and roll down some decently large hills.

“Very Cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

It is an amazing piece of art. It is huge and has a great setting in the outdoor garden. Inside they have had the process that was used to make it too which was very interesting.
