I am not sure if anyone gonna agree with me, but i will express my opinion as to what is all about, according from my point of view.
First you gonna have to see the whole picture. You have "Jesus" who hold a "scroll", which is "Sealed" with "Seven Seals". This whole picture
is referring as the "Seven Year Tribulation". Now the "Bible" itself is referred as a Book of "Prophecies" and "Moral Teachings". The
"Scroll" it self represents the "Earth", the "Seven-Seals" represents "Seven Prophecies" and Jesus represents " The Living Word".
Now coming to your question "4 Horsemen-Why?" . Those 4 Horsemen are key figures. To put it in right words those 4 horsemen are the catalyst of some
" I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, "Come!"
I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest."
Now in my opinion that refers to a future person, that will come with the Intesion to raise "War" since he holds a "Bow". Note that he will will
be an important "Leader" since was given to him a "Crown" and was sent to "conquer".
"When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!" Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was
given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword."
The second horseman may represent the war of conquest as opposed to civil war that the first horseman brings. The red horse could also be spiritual
"When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come!" I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was
holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's
wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"
The third horseman rides a black horse and is generally understood as Famine.The horseman carries a pair of balances or weighing scales, indicating
the way that bread would have been weighed during a famine.
Now out of the four horsemen, the black horse and its rider are the only ones whose appearance is accompanied by a vocal pronunciation, as John hears
a voice, unidentified but coming from among the four living creatures, that speaks of the prices of wheat and barley.
This suggests that the black horse's famine is to drive up the price of grain but leave oil and wine supplies unaffected. One explanation for this is
that grain crops would have been more naturally susceptible to famine years than olive trees and grapevines, which root more deeply; the statement
might also suggest a continuing abundance of luxuries for the wealthy while staples such as bread are scarce, though not totally depleted.
"When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, "Come!" I looked and there before me was a pale horse!
Its rider was named Death, and Hell was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and
plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth."
The fourth and final horseman is named Death. Of all the riders, he is the only one to whom the text itself explicitly gives a name. The verse
beginning "they were given power over a fourth of the earth" may refer solely to Death and Hades as the word " Hades" can be translated as
"Hell". Another possibility is that it may summarize the roles of all four horsemen, which the outcome is simply Death.
As i said at the beginning this is simply my point of View.
