An armored horse

Mr. Looff’s young sons loved stories about knights and jousting. The three armored horses on the Spokane carousel were created for the Looff youngsters. This armored horse is lead horse on Spokane’s Riverfront Park carousel. The carousel has 54 horses, all of them jumpers carved in a running position, that move up and down. Horses on the rim of the carousel, like this one, run and jump at a speed of about 7 mph.
