Ancient horse symbols served to link the sun and sky gods; representing the elemental power of wind, storm, fire, waves and running water. The stallion (Hengist) and horse (horsa) were the twin gods who led the invasion of Britain which serves an an explanation for the huge chalk horse carved in the hillsides in Wiltshire, England. Death is shown riding a black horse, while the white horse is a symbol of light, life and spiritual illumination…. Buddha is said to have left his earthly life on a white horse. Horses also drew the chariots in classical Iranian, Indian, Nordic and Babylonian myths. This interpretation was brought back to Europe by Christian warriors returning home from the Crusades. The horseshoe is seen as a protective symbol.
