I’d heard there was symbolism regarding what the statue of a horse was telling us about the rider on his back…I just found out. Thank you Darla K.
If a statue in the park of a person on a horse
has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle.
If the horse has one front leg in the air,
the person died because of wounds received in battle.
If the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died
of natural causes
Now we know.
