Bronze equestrian portrait of hunter and scout Kit Carson, seen wearing frontiersman garb, including a wide-brimmed hat and buckskin coat. His proper right hand is outstretched, and his proper left arm cradles a rifle and holds the reins. The horse appears in mid-strut, with its proper right front leg raised. The sculpture is mounted upon a multitiered, polished granite base, and enclosed by a picket fence.
