Horses and other equine figures have for centuries been a significant part of British folklore. Their origins remain elusive and their symbolism is swathed in mysticism, but the relationship – spiritual or practical – between horse and human is one of life's strongest bonds. In this book, the role of horses – as sacred emblems and in ancient lore, as primitive chalk etchings on hillsides and in Christian symbolism and in superstitions and as magical beings – in myth and legend is given lively and thorough consideration. A must for all equine lovers and those who want to know more about the lore of the horse in history.
