Bloemfontein White Horse - Naval Hill, Bloemfontein

Description: This horse is on the east side of Naval Hill in Bloemfontein, and is constructed from rocks painted white. It was built by British troops stationed in the area during the Anglo-Boer war, perhaps as a direction marker for troops taking horses to a remount camp that was established there after Lord Roberts captured Bloemfontein on March 15th 1900. Though a number of people have claimed to have been responsible for it, it was probably created by men of the 2nd Battalion of the Duke of Edinburgh's Wiltshire regiment, so could perhaps be said to be the only Wiltshire white horse that is not in Wiltshire.
