An Equestrian portrait shows the subject on horseback.
Equestrian statues were made as far back as antiquity.
In later centuries this portrait type acquired chivalric overtones. Such portraits have always been associated with sitters of high status, with the implication that a noble warrior or ruler was depicted. Later, people further down the social scale aspired to these associations.
