If you’ve ever seen a statue with a person on a horse there is a hidden meaning behind it.
If the horse has both front legs up off the ground that means the person on the horse who the statue is honoring died in battle. If there is only one front leg up in the air that means they died from wounds suffered in battle later. If all four legs are on the ground it means they dies of natural causes.
Now you have some fun history knowledge to show off next time you see a statue with a horse.
