Feast day of St. George

I have him up on my wall:
michael?

The framing of this detail is perfectly placed to raise all sorts of questions: why is the horse so freaked out? Is it because St. George looks like he's about to start hacking at its neck? What's up with the perfectly-groomed topiary trees in the background? Is that a feather on St. George's forehead?

The full-sized picture (which is linked from the detail) holds some answers, but nothing explains those trees.
