This family of life-sized horses has been grazing at Municipal Plaza (City Hall) since 1989. The bronze artwork by Calgary-area artist Harry O'Hanlon was the result of a civic competition. It was paid for by Marg Southern, the president and co-chairman of Spruce Meadows, Calgary's world-class equestrian centre.
"A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves — strong, powerful, beautiful — and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
