River Ridge Senior Living


These two bronze horses welcome visitors to the River Ridge Senior Living Community in Lakewood, Colorado. Patinaed in a rich earthy tones, the horses stand at 10 feet tall, and 18 feet long.


The goals for this piece were to capture the beauty, strength, and grace in wild horses of Colorado. I wanted to create a piece that set the stage for the senior living community while creating a landmark for the facility. My hope is that this sculpture installation welcomes guests and residents to the facility for many years to come.
