The symbolism around the horse knows no bounds and generates infinite interpretations.
The horse is considered a mighty, strong, rocky animal and, in many occasions, a faithful companion of adventures.

Despite their independence and autonomy from men, history and literature have given us many examples of intrepid and brave horses who helped the great leaders conquer the world.
From Alexander the Great’s Bucephalus to Napoleon’s Marengo, from Garibaldi’s Marsala to Buffalo Bill’s Brigham, from the fictional Zeus’ Pegasus to Don Quixote’s Rocinante, all these heroic horses have been at the center of all these achievements and stories.

It is no coincidence that the Olympian gods relied on winged horses to run incessantly along the divine paths nor that the horse represents the personification of the god Prajapati, the Hindu deity who protects the right to procreation and fertility. Where the ancient Celts dedicated a deity for the worship of the horses, the goddess Epona.
