Magical and mystical, the horse has been said to be the first animal "medicine" of civilization. This is so since the horse, by allowing man to ride upon its back, made travel less burdensome. Distances could be covered more quickly and easily on horseback than on foot. Interactions between cultures became possible and the diversity in life was discovered. Through the horse, man was given more freedom and power.
Throughout the ancient world the horse has been almost as important a figure as the sun, being associated with death and rebirth and also with the rising and setting sun. The horse enabled the ancient shamans to "fly" to the spirit world. Through horses we are still connected to our primal and ancient past. Horses can still conjure within us the sense of freedom and power the ancient must have felt.
