Neon Horses

Dallas takes their horses seriously., particularly when the horse is neon and winged. Long considered a landmark of the famous skyline, the neon pegasus has been rotating atop the Magnolia Hotel since 1934. Due to age and deterioration, the 30 x 40 foot double-sided sign was replaced with a stationary duplicate that was unveiled for the New Year's celebration in 2000. The original was put into storage for over a decade, when it was discovered again and restored. The newly restored, original sign was placed in a high visibility location in front of the Omni Hotel, where it greets locals and visitors alike with a mix of old and new.
