Equestrian: All things horse.
This word goes in various directions, but remember, each definition has something to do with horses, or life with horses.
1. Pertaining to horses or horsemanship; as equestrian feats.
2. Being on horseback; as an equestrian lady.
3. Skilled in horsemanship.
4. Representing a person on horseback; as an equestrian statue.
5. Belonging to knights. Among the Romans, the equestrian order was the order of knights, equites; also their troopers or horsemen in the field. In civil life, the knights stood contra-distinguished from the senators; in the field, from the infantry.
I am not exactly sure why it sticks in my mind, but whenever I think of an equestrian statue, I always remember seeing this statue of Robert the Bruce. Funny the things from childhood that stick in your mind.
Equestrian come from the Latin word for horse: equus.
