Coming through the Rye is often marveled at because only six of the sixteen horses’ hooves are
supporting the sculpture, with the figure on the far left being entirely off the base. This group was cast in five pieces: four horses and rider sets attached to the separately cast base. The fastener used, called a roman pin, is strong enough to easily support the weight of this horse and rider pair. Remington created 22 different subjects in bronze. Coming Through the Rye was the eighth sculpture.
