The Mustangs Of Las Colinas by 


The largest equestrian sculpture in the world by sculptor Robert Glen is located in Williams Square, Irving,Texas, USA.

This magnificent larger than life sculpture was installed in 1984 as a memorial to the heritage of Texas. The mustangs are depicted racing through a flow of water in a granite stream.

Mustangs were the escaped descendants of horses brought to America by the Spaniards.
They roamed wild, northwest across Texas from Mexico.
Before the 18th century bands of mustangs were ranging wild and free over Texas and the northern plains.

I am an amateur photographer who loves this wonderful adventure with the camera and I would like to hopefully create a few memorable photos along the way.

    just spot on, isn’t it magic what they did with water flow, and the angle you have looks perfect, had me looking over and over to try and work out why my heart says movement when my head says concrete, it’s the fountain that does it ….and your angle of course, superb

    Excellent image, love the POV, makes me feel like they are going to run over me, well done. When I was in OKC I visited the land rush memorial in Brick Town. these sculptures are amazing, they are 16’ tall, just wondering if the artist is one in the same.

  • Thank you so much, this was a great find indeed. I’ve seen the monument in Bricktown too that is indeed something extraordinary!
