Atop a hill near Vantage in Eastern Washington stands the Wild Horses Monument (entitled “Grandfather cuts loose the ponies!“). The 15 life-sized steel horses were placed there in 1989 to celebrate the centennial of Washington state and were created by artist David Govedare. They make for quite an impressive sight in a very scenic location.
On the Yakama Indian Reservation much further to the south of here there are over 6,000 wild horses roaming free!
