The White Horse

From Wikipeida: The creation of hill figures has been practised since prehistory and can include human (gigantotomy) and animal forms (cutting horses is known as "leucippotomy") as well as more abstract symbols. The White Horse probably held religious significance. The figures are usually created by the cutting away of the top layer of relatively poor soil on suitable hillsides to expose the chalk underneath.
