Galloping Horse Statues

The Hubbard Museum of the American West sits at the bottom of a hill, with the parking lot up above. Between the parking lot and the highway is a statue park filled with beautiful statues of running horses. I came through town far too early to visit the museum, but the horses made me u-turn in short order.

Not giant cartoon horses, but looks ripe for photo op comedy.
