The Horse and Us
925 Silver Galloping Horse Pendant with Hook
“I call horses 'divine mirrors' - they reflect back the emotions you put in. If you put in love and respect and kindness and curiosity, the horse will return that.” – Allan Hamilton
Our Little Story
“War Horse”, “Flicka”, “The Horse Whisperer”, “The Black Stallion”, “Black Beauty”, “Dreamer”,”Seabiscuit” and so many more movies about horses, those are only those I remember. In the end it is about the different relation between the horse and us, about a mutual respect and friendships. Have you ever hear the story of Bucephalus? Bucephalus was the beloved horse of Alexander the Great, nobody but Alexander could ride him, because only Alexander understand that the horse fears his own shadow. They were inseparable, understanding each other, they won many battles. Once Bucephalus was kidnapped, Alexander treated to burn and destroy everything if his horse wasn't returned to him. Of course Bucephalus returned to Alexander no long after. When he passed away, Alexander build a city and named it Becephalus in the memory of his good companion.
A horse in a proud posture, reminding Bucephalus, who didn’t let anyone but Alexander ride him. As a personal note, the horse is in movement, with hair and tail floating, because the only horses I ever saw were always galloping!
