The Historic Horse Rings In Portland Are One Of Oregon’s Most Charming Quirks

The next time you find yourself wandering around Portland, keep an eye on the sidewalk. You might notice some little iron rings affixed to the concrete, right near the curb. What in the world are they? They’re horse rings, and they have a fascinating history.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
