POTD: Sand Island Petroglyph #3

Sand Island Petroglyph #3
Sand Island Campground, Utah

The design and subject matter of these petroglyphs seemed totally out of synch with the other panels at Sand Island Campground, as well as with each other. Do the horses and associated figures represent Spanish conquistadors and/or priests who visited the area on their travels? I know Francisco Vásquez de Coronado was in southern Utah in 1540 on his search for the fabled city of Cibola. I should really study up more on these antiquities.
