The horse has always been a mythical animal. Centuries ago, especially in England and Germany, dreaming of a white horse was considered a harbinger of war. According to Jung, the horse expresses the magical side of man, unconscious intuition. Indeed, from this magical character comes the belief that horseshoes bring good luck. Because of their speed, horses can also embody the wind, the fire, and the light.

Dreaming of horses means you can tame your passions and, therefore, your will has control of your actions.

If the horse runs wild it means you have lost control and let yourself get carried away by your passions.

If you are afraid in the dream it also indicates that you fear your most natural instincts. The horses are also sex symbols and, according to Freud, they represent the terrible aspects of the father figure. In short, horses are the wild forces of the subject’s psyche, whose primary need is that you master them without repressing them.

In some myths and fairy tales, horses have the ability to speak like humans.

If this happens in the dream, it is the voice of your unconscious contacting you. In Greek myths, horses were linked to Hades, god of the underground and death. However, the most common oneiric prophecy says that horses announce news from a faraway place.

If in your dream someone is putting shoes on a horse, you will soon have the best of fortunes.

The horse in a dream represents the energy at our disposal.

A white horse depicts our spiritual awareness, a brown one the more pragmatic and down-to-earth side, while a black horse is the passionate side of our nature.

A pale horse has the same symbolism as the figure of death with this scythe.

A winged horse depicts the soul’s ability to transcend the earthly plane and, therefore, pass through the astral planes.

If the horse is under strain or dying there is a severe weakening of the dynamic power that carries us forward. Too much pressure may be being experienced in our lives.

If the horse is being harnessed to a cart we may be concentrating too hard on thoroughly utilitarian objectives. In a man’s dream a mare will denote the anima, a woman, or the realm of the feminine. In a woman’s dream, being kicked by a horse may indicate the animus or her relationship with a man.

A horse that can get through any door and batter down all obstacles is the collective shadow – those aspects of the personality that most people attempt to suppress.

The horse as a beast of burden is often the great mother or mother archetype. Even though the horse has been superceded in waking life by the car, it still has huge significance in dreams. Also consult the entry for car as well as the information on archetypes in the introduction.

Along with cats and dogs, the horse is one of the most common animal themes in dreams, particularly amongst women. Like dogs, horses are domesticated animals, and so they represent urges and drives in yourself that you have learned to harness or direct. The big difference is that the horse can carry us. Tame, working or domesticated horses in dreams therefore suggest energy and the sort of enthusiasm or feelings of well-being that can help to ‘carry’ you through the day. According to Freud, horses are also symbols of the sexual drive, and the physical energy and life processes that ‘carry’ us around.

The astrological sign of Sagittarius is depicted by a half man-half horse hybrid, so a dream of horses or horses that are half human may be referring to someone born under that sign. In myths and fairy tales, horses often speak and talking horses in dreams may represent the voice of your unconscious—a message from your inner self. In Greek myth, horses were associated with Hades and the underworld but ancient dreamlore suggests that to dream of horses indicates that you will receive news from a distance. To dream of a horse being shod is thought to be extremely lucky because of the association with the horseshoe, a well-known symbol of luck.

Studies show that the animals that most often appear in dreams are horses, along with cats and dogs, and women seem to dream of horses more often than men do; indeed, Artimedorus of Daldis (2nd century AD) lists horses amongst the most common dreams of women. Some dream interpreters suggest that horses represent male sexuality.

According to Freud, horses symbolize the sexual drive. Jung noted that horse dreams could often be indicative of health conditions. Horses, like dogs, represent urges and passions in ourselves that we have learned to harness or direct, and in general they represent positive things that are about to happen in a dreamer’s waking life. Horses suggest the sort of enthusiasm or feelings of well- being that can carry us through the day and through life. Having said that much depends on the context of the dream; for instance, if the dreamer falls off the horse, this may suggest relating badly to urges and passions and the resulting tension this creates.

If the horse is wild, this suggests undirected energy, such as sexual desires which override personal or interpersonal needs.

For Freud, riding a horse is a symbol of sexuality. The gallop suggests passionate intercourse, and the trot, gentle enjoyment. Another interpretation suggests that horse riding suggests a desire for a slower pace of life, whilst galloping or horse racing suggests a competitive streak. Falling or being thrown from a horse suggests that you are worried about taking on too many responsibilities and finding it hard to cope.

If the horses pulling a carriage are out of control in your dream, this suggests loss of control in your waking life but if the carriage is plodding along, it suggests an old-fashioned approach to life and reluctance to look forward to the new.

If you dreamed of riding a horse, or being pulled by one in a carriage or other horse-drawn vehicle, try to decide what the horse symbolizes to you and then note if it was doing your bidding. This will help you see if your unconscious is going along with, or rebelling against, you.
