Can anyone confirm if it was the Westbury White Horse (Wiltshire UK) which was shown in the 2010 movie Robin Hood. One website mentions it was the original and more ancient one in Uffington, (Oxon) but I don't think so.Thanks. StormChild (Australia)
The WHite Horse at Uffington is very different, a beautifully abstracted figure atop a low hill, not on the side of the hill. It does not, unlike the figure in the movie, look like My Little Pony although the white horse at Uffington site on wiki claims that the scene in the movie references the Uffington figure.
I just googled the Westbury WHite Horse and it looks like the one in the movie. It is not the original White Horse at the site. I would suggest that this horse is not an easy ride to the sea.
Thank you Plainoldme, you must be thinking along the same lines as myself.
