Trisan Gets a Thoroughbred

Trisan Construction was proud to support the Headwaters Parade of horses,  a whimsical and unique series of outdoor horse sculptures featuring 26 fiberglass horses transformed through the creativity of talented artisans. 

Each statue stands at 15 hands , 6 feet at the highest point, and weighs 150 pounds. The public were invited to purchase one of the horses in the parade, and the 26 patrons who are now “horse owners” stepped up to generously support this undertaking, and help bring the vision to life. Trisan made the selection of The Conqueror by Carolina Remmig-Drenters. The horse represents a native American Indian horse. In times of celebration they decorated their horses with dye made from flowers and trees. The hands were put on by each villager for a safe return and in spirit during times of battle. The statue was then donated to and currently resides at the Trisan Centre.
