UPDATE 5/02/11: Way to go T+L community member BrendaWeatherhead! You guessed correctly that this hillside carving is the Osmington White Horse monument in Dorset, near Weymouth Bay. This 260 ft. figure was carved into the hills in 1808 by locals in honor of King George III who frequently visited the town.
