Horse's head at the riding hall in Coburg, Germany

The Coburg Riding Hall (Coburger Reiterhalle) is in the immediate vicinity of Ehrenburg Palace (Schloss Ehrenburg). It was built in 1852 according to the plans of master builder Georg Konrad Rothbart. Theodor Behrens created the sculptural horse’s head in the tondo directly above the pointed arch portal. [German]

Today, the neo-Gothic sandstone edifice houses one of the stages of the Landestheater Coburg, whose main building is located just a few steps away on the palace square (Schlossplatz).
