The 800th anniversary of the sealing of the Charter of the Forest was the inspiration behind the design. The horse is decorated with flora and fauna, with many animals and birds hiding between trees and leaves. The Lincolnshire landscape features on the knights body, with his sword and shield standing out in gold. The design is painted in a bold, almost stained glass style with pearlescent and gold leaf highlights to really sparkle in the sun.
