"The dominant spirit, however, that haunts this enchanted region, and seems to be commander-in-chief of all the powers of the air, is the apparition of a figure on horseback, without a head. It is said by some to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper, whose head had been carried away by a cannon-ball, in some nameless battle during the Revolutionary War, and who is ever and anon seen by the country folk hurrying along in the gloom of night, as if on the wings of the wind."
- The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Washington Irving
The Horseman is an 8 oz, white, coconut soy candle with a crackling wooden wick. The candle sniffs of charred pumpkin, freshly roasted coffee beans, and sweet, warm autumnal spices - the perfect accompaniment to a walk in a misty autumn wood, leaves crackling underfoot and the beat of hooves in the distance.
