King George III on Flickr.
“The Osmington White Horse is a hill figure sculpted in 1808 into the limestone Osmington hill just north of Weymouth called the South Dorset Downs, within the parish of Osmington.
The figure is of King George III, who regularly visited Weymouth, and made it ‘the first resort’, riding on his horse, and can be seen for miles around. …
There is a legend that King George was offended that the figure was riding out of Weymouth — a sign that he was not welcome — and never returned.”
“In August 2011 pranksters added a ‘horn’ made from plastic sheeting to make the horse resemble a Unicorn.
The Osmington White Horse is the only figure that is a case of both leucippotomy and gigantotomy”

Surprised I spotted this in the distance from Portland - I couldn’t see it too clearly to begin with, but my camera acted as a telescope. :)
