Possibly, Bobbie. But it is a matter of belief, not actual fact.
The four horsemen depicted in the Book of Revelation are presented as archetypes of what they represent. It is the same way other traditions will use figures or characters are arxhetypes of things, like the elements or the cardinal directions.
Some people follow a path using these archtypical beings as merely symbolic and conceptual, while others view them as spiritual beings.
