Symbolism of the Horse
Horses have aided humankind, according to some accounts, for over 6,000 years. Once used only for meat, the horse soon became invaluable as a bearer of burdens, tiller of soil, and mount during times of war.
The Celts had an important relationship with horses. According to legend, the horse was a beast belonging to the Sun god, and it was assigned to its place as a mount for the Goddess Epona.
