    • The Riderless Horse or caparisoned horse is the single riderless horse with boots reversed in the stirrups that follows the caisson carrying the casket in a funeral procession. The custom is believed to date back to the time of Genghis Khan, when a horse was sacrificed to serve the fallen warrior in the next world. The caparisoned horse later came to symbolize a warrior who would ride no more. In the United States, the caparisoned horse is part of the military honors given to an Army or Marine Corps officer who was a colonel or above; this includes the President, by virtue of having been the nation's military Commander in Chief and the Defense Secretary, having overseen the armed forces.
