This sculpture depicts a cowboy from 80 years ago. At that time horses were broke to ride at 4 or 5 years old. A horse had to be ready for a 30-mile ride every few days. These were working animals. They had to earn their living. A green bronc was worked around the corral enough for the cowboy to get on. The horse would be tense. The cowboy would know that he had to be ready for the storm that was about to happen.
