The Horse Palace is one of the most beautiful buildings on the Exhibition Place grounds. Built in the early 1930s, it is designed and decorated in the Art Deco style. At the time it was built it was considered the finest equestrian facility in Canada. It plays host to a major part of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair every year, and the Toronto Police Service stable their mounted units there.

From a purely aesthetic point of view, it is a delight to walk around it and try to count all the different ways the architect tried to incorporate horses into the design. I captured a few of them, but there are many more!

There are five photos in this gallery.
