Remington studied the movement of horses, using the photographs of Eadweard Muybridge, and incorporated his knowledge into this representation of cowboys coming to town for a raucous celebration. This sculpture challenged Remington because he wanted to raise as many of the horses' hooves off the ground as possible, while adequately supporting the sculpture.
