People waiting to satisfy their curiosity leaned out to see who it was, suddenly they realized that it was the same rider riding his horse, but what they did not know is that they were about to get a surprise!
When a strong lightning struck, it illuminated the rider demonstrating Who had no head! When people were frightened by that terrifying image, they ran to hide in their homes and since then the origin of that headless horseman has not been explained.
