Character information
Only appearance

The Legend of Sleepy Halliwell


The Headless Horseman was a magical being conjured into Magic School by a student named Zachary, who used his power of telepathy to replicate the powers of other students and teachers.


In 2004, the Horseman appeared at Magic School and started decapitating the staff. However, as Magic School was protected by magic, none of the victims were killed as long as at least part of them remained in the school. The current headmaster, Gideon, sent his assistant Sigmund to ask the Charmed Ones for help.

It was eventually revealed the horseman was conjured by Zachary, as he felt he was being held there against his will and Gideon refused to listen to him. The Horseman was eventually summoned and destroyed by the Charmed Ones.





  • Headless Horsemen have been present in European folkore since the Middle Ages.
  • The Headless Horseman is most known from the movie The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, after which the episode the Horseman appeared in is named.
  • Despite being in Magic School where death was preventable, the Headless Horseman was vanquished by the sisters. There are two theories to this matter. One, the sisters' combined magic overpowered the protection spell on the campus; and two, the Horseman was conjured and therefore not technically a living being.


The Headless Horseman appeared in a total of 1 episode throughout the course of the series.
