We enjoyed walking around downtown Lindsborg and reading the plaques about each beautifully decorated horse There’s an informational brochure available to help locate each one.

All along you see the horses in front of stores. Most of them different, quirky , fun . Stores clean and neat. My only problem was, in the factory for the horses it was jaw dropping expensive. Just me. They are beautiful and nice

Really nice having all of the differently painted horses around town. definitely found the ugliest (hint it's by the park). Never did find a cheat sheet or log book that would allow us to check them off as we found them.

it was interesting to see the variety of the horses (i.e. the decorations), especially thought the one in front of the senior center was cool (horse was wearing glasses)
