Horses of Honor is a unique opportunity for businesses, individuals, and associations to publicly support police-related charities in a meaningful and lasting tribute.
Since 1853, over 500 Chicago Police officers have sacrificed their lives to protect our city. This is where the Horses of Honor story begins. Scores of artists have painted life-size police horse statues to memorialize these heroes. But countless more officers and their families have made similar sacrifices across the country. This public art tribute began on September 11, 2014 and continues today in Chicago and now Omaha, Nebraska. Each installation benefits police related charities.
Each Horse of Honor is personally dedicated to a police officer who has been killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty.
Mounted police horses provide a unique way for officers to keep the peace and engage with the public, many of whom are drawn to the grace and power of these public service animals. Horses of Honor statues are life-size, fiberglass monuments.
Designed and painted by local artists, Horses of Honor is a public art installation benefiting police related charities. Over 100 life-size horses have already been created.
