The Alton Barnes White Horse while not as well know as the Uffington Horse is easily seen without climbing hills, seen from miles away and looks good with the sun on it

Driving back from Stonehenge, north through the village of Alton Barnes, stopped off to show the kids the Alton Barnes White Horse on the northern side of the Pewsey valley.
One of their favourite Wiltshire pastimes, visiting all of the white horses, so they ended the day happy.
Free to visit with small free carpark across the road at the top of the hill.
Good end to the day!

Wasn't expecting to see this. Saw it as we were heading to Avebury so stopped for a photo opportunity.

The scenery in this part of Wiltshire is unspoilt and tranquil.Loads of foot paths and places to stop and just relax.

Our Mad Max Driver stopped to show us this white horse art as we were driving from Stonehenge to Avebury. It was quite interesting to see and hear about this and other "horses" on the UK hillsides. We didn't stop long, but i think it would be interesting to do a short hike up to the horse.

See the white horse from the road on the way to Avebury, but believe the kiwi at Belford camp is better

My daughter and I parked up at the top of the hill in the public carpark. Walked across the hills in blazing sunshine to Adam’s grave, then along to the Whitehorse. Had a picnic up on the round barrow above the horse, looking out across the wheat fields. with not a cloud in the sky. Woodborough hill rising like a desert island in the distance. Beautiful. A wonderful way to spend a lazy Saturday.

Walking along the ridge from Adam's Grave Long Barrow, i managed to get a close up view of the Alton Barnes White Horse - one of the areas lesser known and smaller white horses.
Starting to green over a little - especially in contrast to the white snow covering the horses head from last weekends snowfall - its quite well proportioned.
Driving west from Alton Barnes later in the day, i got a better view from the road the horse.
Adds something to a visit to the Vale of Pewsey.

My wife and I saw the Alton Barnes White Horse on 4/2/17 when driving towards Avebury. We were interested to see this site before, and I will be honest accidently just stumbled upon it off the roadside. When we saw the horse, it was very large on a hill across an open field off the road -- we did not climb up the hill or through the fields to see the horse up-close (which would have made it almost unrecognizable) -- the best views to capture the horse as a whole is from a distance, and the roadside (near the Alton Barnes plaque on the 30MPH sign was the perfect place). The chalk horse is supposedly the 2nd largest horse in Wiltshire, and was commissioned in 1812 AD, based on the Cherhill White Horse.

We saw a few people in the distance climbing up to the horse, but honestly after taking a few photos and looking at the horse for a couple minutes, there is not much more to see of it. Very impressive on the landscape as a quick visit, but nothing to spend more than 5 mins through a camera or staring at it from the roadway.

I had walked from Avebury on my way to Adam's Grave. I passed it on the way. Very good in that you could get very close to it and also see it from a distance further along the path.
