Galloping Mechanical Horse takes the World by Storm!

By -

Adrian Landon is a metal sculptor based in Brooklyn, New York genetically infused with a love for horses. Son to a father who is a polo fan, and a grand father who is an equine vet, Landon takes his gift to sculpt metal horses for the world’s amusement and his passion.

Carrying his passion further, Landon decided to build a metal horse sculptor that could move – and he was not contended with shallow movement! He wanted his sculptor to move with the glory of a living horse.

The first model, designed on paper, didn’t quite stroke Landon’s expectations. Giving up pen and paper after a tiresome try, he set out to design his sculpture on a 3D CAD program. “It’s like inventing a car from scratch, and it definitely won’t be perfect the first time,” he says. The final version, he claims, is 10 times better than the original.

This horse is a mechanical sculptor and contains over 100 bearings, custom laser-cut sprockets, 30 feet (9 m) of chain, and 23 articulating joints.

Landon is pleased with giving the world a feel for the magnificent animals that horses are. “Horses have been in my family for generations. This relation that I have had the privilege to develop is what I seek to portray in my work, to give people, and not just horse people, a feel for something that they should know about, and by making this Mechanical Horse, I am taking it to the next level,” says Landon.
