The black horse was originally a symbol of Count Francesco Baracca, a legendary Italian air force ace during World War I; he painted it on the side of every plane he flew. Some historians trace the horse back to 1692, where a similar design was found on a banner of the Duke of Savoy, while others claim the horse was simply a reminder of home and his family’s stables, but there are also accounts of the horse being a badge — evidence that Baracca shot down a pilot from Stuttgart, Germany, where the city crest bears a similarly styled prancing horse.

In 1923, Enzo Ferrari won an opportunity to meet Count Enrico Baracca and Countess Paolina Baracca in person after winning a race at the Savio circuit in Ravenna. And it was there when the countess suggested Enzo should brand his vehicles with the prancing horse for good luck.
