A horse is a creature who runs when he wants to. Kicks up his heels when he feels like it. If a horse has shown up in your life, then it is a zest for living. Do you have zest or do you need to cultivate some?
I had a green broke paint that would hide the saddle when my father put it on the fence. Flicka, my inventive name for my horse, had an independent spirit, which kept her free of the saddle most of the time. A horse as your totem can represent freedom.
The image of horses running with their manes and tails streaming back is a beautiful image. It also conveys great energy, which can be creative, physical, or sexual. You’ll be coming into this excess of stamina. Masculine power is associated with the horse, in particular, the stallion.
Ever watch videos of wild horse herds. Not only do they represent freedom, energy, but they also symbolize strong emotion. Consider two stallions bugling at one another or a mare that refuses a stallion's advances. The emotions don’t get much more passionate.
If a horse has appeared to you, it is a reminder, you can change your path at any time. Do you feel like it is too late to follow your dreams? It isn’t.
How you see the animal has some influence too. Is the horse in a trailer or a stall? Perhaps you feel constrained by situations in your life.
