“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

This is such a lovely, peaceful place to visit. The sculptures are absolutely beautiful. Amazing life-like and several are balancing on one hoof. The park is grassy & shaded with paved pathways that make it easy to walk. A beautiful little park to relax & enjoy. It is beside the Hubbard Museum about a mile past Ruidoso Downs

“Great place to stop, stretch and admire.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

These horses are beautiful to look at. Stroll around and then check out the museum. If you like horses this is something to see.

“Larger Than Life”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Larger than life horses gallop over a hill and through a pretty park. Definitely a fun photo op. Other reviews mentioned the balancing on one hoof so we were especially looking for those. It was quite amazing. All of the horses are identified with a placard sign with a blurb about the particular breed. The horses are right by the Hubbary Museum making a nice outing together.

“Beautiful park and sculpture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We really enjoyed our stop here. Sculptures were so beautiful. The visitor center is next door which added to the stop. Two Geocaches in area which enhanced the visit. Makes for a great photo op!
