24-Foot-Tall Trigger, Roy Rogers' Horse

Trigger statue.

[Kim Wheeler, 01/02/2016]

For decades this huge fiberglass version of Trigger, Roy Rogers' horse, reared up on a pedestal in front of the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum in Victorville. When the museum shipped east to Branson, the statue also departed, but returned to be installed near Roy and Dale's graves in 2014.
