Late this past summer, with more than 160 horses and foals emerging to grace street corners, parks and sidewalks, it was as if Lexington had finally awakened from a two-year Covid-induced slumber.
Tens of thousands of race fans turned out for Keeneland’s fall meet and the 2022 Breeders’ Cup World Championship and were greeted by the colorful, thought-provoking, decorated and bedazzled equine sculptures. Perhaps even more impressive was the fact that every school, both public and private, received the materials to create their own signature horse or foal, giving the children an unparalleled opportunity as budding artists.
Horse Mania 2022 — the book — provides a permanent and beautiful record of each work of art. This 226-page coffee table book shares photographs and inspirations from the moment the blank white fiberglass equine sculptures first rolled into town, to the amazing 3-day showcase at the Henry Clay estate, to the final placements throughout Lexington.
For anyone who loves Lexington and/or horses, this commemorative book is the perfect accent for home or office..
