The horseman figure is San Martin Caballero. In Mexico, San Martin Caballero is especially popular among shop-keepers, who rely on passing strangers for their livelihood, and among truck drivers, who see in his horsemanship a parallel to their own vocation. Because the horse he rides is associated with the lucky horseshoe, he is also a favourite saint among gamblers. In Cuba, some Santeros identify him with Elegua, because this orisha is associated with crossroads and hence with travel.
