Description:
Equestrian Statues are statues of famous people on horseback. The art form has been important and widespread in Europe and the Americas for hundreds of years, though there has been a definite falling-off of new ones in the past 75 years or so. The equestrian statue is often the most prominent memorial landmark in town.
