Western States Horse Expo, an entire build- ing area is dedicated to beautiful pieces of art, all focused on the horse. Horse people embrace the horse in so many ways—hav- ing horses is truly a lifestyle, refl ected by clothing, footwear, vehicles, barns, fenc- ing—and artwork that adorns our homes. At the Western States Horse Expo, visitors can stroll through the art show and fi nd a fascinating array of artwork—and it’s all for sale! This year, in an ongoing eff ort to draw the fi nest artists in the country, the Western States Horse Expo is off ering a $1,000 cash prize to the winner of Best in Show, and a $250 cash prize to fi rst places in each divi- sion. Categories for the show include acrylic, colored pencil, mixed media, sculpture, wearable art, oil, pastel, pencil/charcoal, photography, and watercolor. To encourage young people to participate in expressing their love of horses, there are junior art cate- gories. Each division is judged by profession- als, with top honor going to Best of Show. Expo at endees are encouraged to vote for their favorite piece of art, and the most pop- ular vote will be presented with the “People’s Choice Award.” Horses have been the icons of civilization throughout history, with mankind depending upon them for farming, transportation, war, and exploration. Horses have been depicted in art throughout the ages, too, oſt en seen in larger-than-life stat- ues. In fact, there is urban legend that sol- diers seen astride in statues are thought to have died during bat le if the horse is rear- ing. The soldier was wounded in bat le if one of the horse’s front legs is liſt ed up, and if all four hooves are on the ground, the soldier died outside of bat le.
