Horse Medicine : What Horses Teach Us
Speed, strength, and grace are the finer qualities of this noble animal. The horse lived on the North American continent for thousands of years, but mysteriously disappeared and was later reintroduced by Spanish Conquistadors in the 1500's. American Indians quickly mastered equestrian skills and found the spirit of the horse to be a valuable asset in learning ways of leadership, safety in movement and freedom.
Even though the horse can be domesticated, it's spirit forever roams into the far reaches of freedom. The horse meant ease of movement for indigenous people who quickly learned they could hunt and move into new territories as never before. For those who seek the spirit of the horse, the idea of freedom may be a predominant theme. To the American Indian, the horse symbolizes freedom and the power that comes with being free.
If horse has come in your dreams or visions, there may be a promise of safe travel ahead. Movement or a new adventure, whether it be physical or spiritual is near.
People knowledgeable of horse medicine know that taming the wild, freedom seeking aspects of its personality is not easy, but the benefits of gentleness and tolerance is attainable with patient kindness and continual training.
The horse spirit is intensely independent that often creates conflict in personal and professional relationships. People who walk with the horse spirit are often independent leaders who forge new paths of awareness.
The power and strength of the horse spirit is able to take its rider to new spiritual territory. It reminds us of our inner power and gives us courage to move forward.
The strong legs and back of the horse remind us to remain solidly grounded in our spiritual walk our earthly experiences and to carry the burdens of life with dignity.
