The Home of the Last Tsar - Romanov and Russian History

Palace Park - Imperial Horse Graveyard

from our online book Tsarskoe Selo in 1910

Near the retired Horse Stables was their graveyard:

The old horses are allowed to walk about in the meadow during summer. On the other side of the stable is a burial ground where a row of marble slabs mark the resting places of the favorite horses. Here lies "Ami" the horse that was with the Emperor Alexander I in Paris; "Flora", the horse that carried the Emperor Nicholas at Varna; and "Cob" the horse, which the late Tsar Alexander III used to ride, when he reviewed his troops.
