Ogden Pioneer Days celebrates its 75th Anniversary this year and part of this celebration is the beautiful display of close to eighty hand painted horses that line the streets in downtown Ogden. The west was built on the back of its horses, on the spirit of its cowboys and on the character of its pioneers. With the "Trail to Pioneer Days" display Ogden celebrates cowboys, ranching, rodeo and our western way of life. These magnificent horses will graze along Historic 25th Street, Union Station, Washington Boulevard and the Junction leading the way to the Pioneer Stadium where Ogden Pioneer Days originated and where the feeling of the American West still lives.
