Carved into the hillside in an abstract style is the shape of a horse running free. Close by is Waylands Smithy and Dragon Hill. Local legend has it that a horse tethered overnight at Wayland's Smithy will be shod by the ghost of a blacksmith. Dragon Hill is named as such for the belief that it is the site of St. George's slaying of the dragon. Dragon Hill is site of Druidic worship to this day. The White Horse of Uffingham may be a visual folk art reminder of the legend of the Horserider in southern England.
The White Horse is 3,000 years old.
