    It is commonly believed that

    Both front legs in the air means the person on the horse died in battle.

    If the horse has one front leg in the air the person died as a result of wounds received in battle.

    All four legs on the ground denote the person died of natural causes.

    However this has been under debate for some time and im not sure if it actually true.

  4. There is a statue of Queen Victoria in Liverpool, and she is astride a horse,
    with one leg off the ground (the horse that is) so i was wondering what battle did she died in. LOL
