According to legend, the place name Bagnacavallo comes from a hypothetical water spring which healed the beloved horse of the Emperor Tiberius; this is confirmed by the motto of the coat of arms of the municipality: Ingredior rhoebus, cyllaros egredior (I enter ill, I leave healthy).

A more mundane explanation is that visitors trying to get into town had to cross a marsh on horseback.
