Continental Logo Meaning

The most widely believed theory of the horse logo is that it all began when a veterinarian named Hartmann invented hoof buffers which were made from soft rubber and prevented horses from slipping on icy surfaces. The hoof buffers also improved the overall mobility of the horse. Continental organized the production and distribution of the hoof buffers which each carried an icon that displayed the jumping horse.

The horse logo is used because of the distinct qualities of the horse: strength, agility, and endurance.
