The Mustangs of Las Colinas can be found at Williams Square in the Las Colinas area of Irving. These bronze sculpture of nine mustang horses, larger than life, are immortalized moving across the plaza through a stream of water.
Historian J. Frank Dobie, so aptly described them as follows: "These horses bore Spanish explorers across two continents. They brought to the plains Indians the age of horse culture. Texas cowboys rode them to extend the ranching occupation clear to the plains of Alberta. Spanish horse, Texas cow pony, and mustang were all one in those times when, as sayings went, a man was no better than his horse, and a man on foot was no man at all. Like the longhorn, the mustang has been virtually bred out of existence. But mustang horses will always symbolize western frontiers, long trails of longhorn herds, seas of pristine grass, and men riding free on a free land."
