Trail to Pioneer Days

“The “Trail to Pioneer Days” horse project is one of the largest public art projects of its kind in Utah. More than 60 life-size fiberglass horses designed and painted by the area’s finest artists are on display along Historic 25th Street, the Junction and Washington Boulevard. They lead the way to Ogden Pioneer Stadium where Ogden Pioneer Days originated and where the feeling of the American West still lives.” ~Trail to Pioneer Days

If you’re wondering how the horses came to be, who designed them, who painted them, and where they’re located, check out this great walking tour from our friends at Visit Ogden and Ogden City. The map features details for each horse and information on the artist(s) who created them. Take the tour and see if you can spot them all!

Any guess on the number of horses found here on Historic 25th?
