Vantage Bridge Wild Horses Monument Display
The Vantage Bridge Wild Horses Monument Display is located smack dab in the middle of Washington State, off of the eastbound lanes of I-90, just east of the Columbia River.
This horse sculpture/display was created by artist David Govedare and is perched atop a hill overlooking the Columbia River below. The display can be seen for miles on a clear day and is visible from viewpoints along I-90 on the east side of the Columbia River. The best vantage point is about two miles east of the Vantage Bridge across the Columbia River. The eastbound off-ramp has a rough path that leads a quarter mile uphill to the Wild Horses Monument.
Once you reach the overlook parking lot, you’ll enjoy views below of the Columbia River and the Vantage Bridge, as well as the views above toward the wild horses display. If you so choose, like I did, you can hike up to the top of the bluff to walk among the horses. You’ll be amazed by the immense size of the display, as well as the thickness of the steel. This display was built to last for many generations to enjoy. Unfortunately, some hoodlums feel the need to tag these sculptures with paint, so I’m sure it’s a continual battle to keep them graffiti-free for all to enjoy.
