Sorry, 'His New Winchester' Sculpture is no longer available.
Within a few short years these people of the Great Plains found that with the horse they could become a mobile and wealthy society. Hunting buffalo became much easier, even sport, and moving larger and larger lodges and accumulating more possessions was now possible. They cherished their horses and prided themselves in raising good, strong animals that could survive on the prairie year round, wintering on dry grass and cotton wood bark. Indian horses were known for their unbelievable endurance and stamina. Plains Indians became the greatest horsemen in the world, the Cossacks of the Plains, the greatest light cavalry in the world. They rode every day, sometimes continuously, eating, and even sleeping on horseback.
Horse stealing raids and warfare among tribes became more common and more intense, and warrior societies grew strong and formidable. They hunted for trade hides, and bartered for weapons and goods, and traveled great distances to trading posts and forts, all the while, unwittingly, inviting more and more incursion by the foreigners with the pale skin.
NewWinchester I have sought to capture the tremendous horsemanship of
these young men, and the value of the modern weapons of the white men, that
introduced and symbolized a new and deadly form of warfare.
