Out front there was this really neat horse statue covered in copper coloured pieces of glass all soldered together. This was just one such horse was saw while driving about. Too bad we couldn't stop every time I noticed one. They are all the same horse but decorated/painted differently. And they are everywhere it seems.
All around the motel were life-sized statues. Pretty much all with a horse-racing theme.
This explains the one pictured above.
I caught a photo of this horse as we rounded a corner in downtown Saratoga Springs and there was no one behind us. Go here to see many more examples of Saratoga Springs' horse sculptures.
