Odd horseshoe in Celle

Odd horseshoe in Celle, Germany

While walking through Celle I wondered what this horseshoe seen at the ‘Stechbahn‘ is indicating? Passersby told me it marks that place where Otto V, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg died at a tournament. Hmm, I always thought horseshoes are a sign of fortune? Obviously not in that case.
