This figure depicts Rick during a simpler time when he was an ordinary sheriff's deputy, before the events of The Walking Dead which transformed him into the hardened leader and experienced undead slayer he is today.
The Rick On Horseback Special Edition was inspired by the scene in which Rick makes his way to Atlanta to search for Lori and Carl. His horse rears in fright the moment Rick discovers the city is overrun. Rick is armed and ready to take on the undead with a bag of weapons from the Sheriff department armory. He has little idea of the despair that lies ahead.
