The white horse has been carved out in chalk and on the hillside for a long long time. It is worth the hike to see it and it costs nothing.The views from Sutton bank are stunning if you get a clear day.

Took a windy drive downhill to find it and viewed it from car in car park. Disappointed because we hadn’t expected it to be made of concrete. To be honest would not recommend going out of your way. Enjoy from a distance if you can.

Nice white horse on a hillside made more enjoyable by the drive up Sutton Bank! We were lucky to have nice sunny conditions.

We travelled from Thirsk to Kilburn & photographed the horse from the roadside. Spectacular! You will need a decent camera to get a good result from this location.
