Description

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.show more
