The six horses were Emperor Tang Taizong’s favorite battle-chargers and closely connected with his major military campaigns. Taizong ordered images of his six favorite horses to be carved in stone. Their names are: Saluzi (???), Quanmaogua (???), Baitiwu (???), Telebiao (???), Qingzhui (??), and Shifachi (???). Taizong also composed six laudatory poems in honor of the horses. The six stone horse reliefs were originally placed outside the Mausoleum of Emperor Tang Taizong, known in Chinese as “Zhaoling Liujun ????.”
