The 300kg life-size horse sculpture has been gifted to the city by Waikato Equestrians and
They commissioned artist Matt Gauldie to create the statue to honour the 18,000 New Zealand horses deployed with Kiwi troops in the South African War and World War One. The horses endured terrible suffering, such that only five came home, but they never failed.
Armistice Day is the annual international commemoration of the end of World War One.
