Chalk hill figure of horse and rider created in 1808. The rider represents King George III, a regular visitor to Weymouth.

  • Grid reference: SY715833
  • Location: Just off the ridgeway that forms the inland route of the South West Coast Path National Trail. West of Osmington, north east of Weymouth.
  • Access information: The horse is on a very steep slope and is best viewed from a distance. It can be seen from the Esplanade at Weymouth and from surrounding roads.
  • Other information: It is best to avoid walking on the horse itself - the slope is so steep you could fall - and you'd damage the horse!
