Memorial Day 2015. Below is our 2015 Facebook post for Memorial Day. This statue is at a park in the town of Huntsville, Utah, just a few miles north of the Browning corporate offices in Morgan County. The concept of the riderless horse has a significant historical backstory, and riderless horses have been seen in countless military funeral processions, including the processions of presidents Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy.
From Wikipedia: "A riderless horse or caparisoned horse (in reference to its ornamental coverings, which have a detailed protocol of their own) is a single horse, without a rider, and with boots reversed in the stirrups, which sometimes accompanies a funeral procession. The horse follows the caisson carrying the casket. A riderless horse can also be featured in military parades to symbolize fallen soldiers."
