From the Lenten hymn Again We Keep This Solemn Fast:   
This Lent which brings us, lovingly   
To faith and hope and charity

By the fourth century (when Christianity was legalized in the Roman Empire) Lent had developed into its current length of forty days.

The Gospel According to St. Matthew: Chapter 20 Verses 17-18   
As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve [disciples] aside   
by themselves and said to them on the way, 
"Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man     
will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes,     
and they will condemn him to death."

The Gospel of Luke Chapter 19 Verse 38     
They proclaimed:   
Blessed is the king who comes     
in the name of the Lord.   
Peace in heaven     
and glory in the highest.     
 
Only in Luke is Jesus explicitly given the title king when he enters Jerusalem in the triumph.

What is the significance of Jesus riding on a colt?

The fulfillment of the prophecy in Zechariah 9: 9,     
making the triumphant entry of Jesus while riding a lowly animal as a symbol of peace.     
When horses are mentioned in the Bible they are almost always in relation to kings and war.

In the ancient Biblical world, a leader rode on a horse if he was coming in war and a donkey to signify peace.
