The marble sculpture of "Horse Tamers" was established in the 1740-1745 by Guillaume Coustou senior (Guillaume Coustou I, 1677-1746) - the famous French sculptor of the first half of the XVIII century, who worked on the decoration of palaces and parks of Versailles, Marly, Trianon and the Tuileries.
