A vast and diverse trail of symbolism follows the horse’s rich history with humankind. As a “spirit animal” (or totem), the horse represents personal drive, passion and appetite for freedom. Horse spirit animals are likely to represent your inner strength and appetite for life. As a power animal it relates to an ability to express oneself freely and assertively, as even a tamed horse maintains a strong energy and independent drive.
As a Celtic symbol, the Horse was associated with war and thus bravery, victory and all the spoils that came with triumph in battle. Acts of valor were so closely connected to the horse that the Celts hailed it as the beast belonging to the sun god. The list goes on: grace, beauty and nobility, with the symbolism subject to whether the horse is wild or tethered, black or white. Having a natural companionship with man, a tamed horse is known to represent trusting relationships, whilst a white horse is said to symbolize a development of instincts and intuition and is associated with elevating spiritual aspirations. In Buddhism, Buddha is said to have left the physical plane riding a white horse.
