Miss Muriel Cobern told of her 1965 experience in the summer on Walkers Hill, Wiltshire. She was walking back from the barrow above the white horse, heading towards the lay-by, where she had parked her car and this was at the top of the hill. She had walked around 50 yards nearer to the barrow when a sense of unease came upon her. She glanced around, looking towards the sky, yet she felt the air had turned cold yet the sheep in the fields were acting in their normal way. This gave her a sense of normality and she carried on walking towards where her car was parked.
All of a sudden, she heard the distinct sound of horses hooves, as though there were very many horses, all galloping. She then quickened her speed as she felt she was in danger of being trampled by these unseen horses. She soon passed the barrow and as she did, the noise of these horses' hooves just stopped. There were no horses to be seen at all.
