Horses are arguably one of the most breathtakingly beautiful creatures on earth. Likewise, dreams about horses tend to be awe-inspiring and thankfully primarily on the positive side. As a powerful animal that is capable of surprising gentleness, there are multiple reasons that this beloved equine may have trotted itself into your dreams. Is it just your mind reflecting on your love of horses or is it something more? The meaning of a dream about horses can greatly depend on the circumstances of the night time vision, as well as what is happening currently in your life. Join us as we delve deeper into the common interpretations for dreams where horses are the main star.
Wild And Free
Have you been dreaming about a wild horse galloping through an open field and having the time of its life? Perhaps you dreamt of riding a horse at full speed, closing your eyes and just enjoying the amazing experience. This type of dream is usually a sign of your happiness with how your life is going. A feeling of freedom and joy that can’t be controlled. The wild horse is free from all stressors and running purely for the sake of stretching its own legs.
This dream is almost always positive and represents a point in time where you can truly say you are living your best life. This is the moment to enjoy it all as such natural highs refresh the soul but don’t tend to last very long. For those whose emotions do not match with the dream, revisit the images you saw while dreaming and perhaps there is something you missed. A wild horse with fear in its eyes as it is being chased, or one forced to run for sport may have been mistaken which can hold an entirely different meaning.
Raw And Majestic Power
The prancing, powerful stallion sparring with a rival male or simply showing off his superior figure is another commonly occurring dream. Displays of strength are common, even if indirectly through the simple flexing of muscles while the stallion moves. Every part of this dream screams power, but the underlying meanings can go even deeper. For women, this may indicate the appeal of the man you desire, as hard to pull your eyes away from as a beautiful stallion is. To you, he is undefeatable, and there is no one and nothing that can compare.
For men, these dreams can indicate your peak performance and appeal to women. For hundreds of years and even today, the stallion has been lauded as a sign of virility, sexuality, and raw strength. So if your sexual desire and passion have been at a higher level as of late, your captivating dreams may simply be drawing more attention to your desires in the hope of satisfaction.
Fight Or Flight
Sometimes dreams of horses aren’t all sunshine and roses. Fear and anxiety may be evident by the behavior of the horses in your dreams. Horses are prey animals who distinctly choose flight first if at all possible, and fight when cornered or seriously threatened. The image of an anxious horse within your dreams can be a sign that you need to slow down with whatever goal you are striving for.
Fearful horses can’t be rushed. They need a calm, but steady approach to preventing the instinct to flee to preserve their lives from overpowering all other senses. You don’t train and gain a horses trust after one long day; it takes several days with short sessions. You may be beating yourself up about not doing as well as you hoped, or having your progress slow down. It is time to take a step back and relax, be thankful for all you have achieved and not push the envelope.
Taming A Horse
If your dream involves taming a formerly untamed horse, this is a great sign for your future progress. Taming a horse to the point that you can lead and ride it is easily translated to tackling your problems and coming out on top. It is a sign that if you continue to strive forward, you will gain control over your problems and stop them from defeating you. Before you cheer about the upcoming ease, keep in mind that this victory will not simply be handed to you and it will take some hard work on your part.
There will be rough patches, like a green horse trying to buck off the saddle, or even you on the first ride. The most important thing is not to lose heart. Whatever your goal may be, keep at it, and it will prove to be well worth it in the end. This is a lesson in perseverance more than anything else. It means not giving up even if you go two steps back at one point. Become the master of your struggles instead of letting them ride you to the point of exhaustion.
An Aggressive Animal
If your dream involves a horse aggressively charging, biting, or kicking, then it can reference some turmoil going on within yourself, or even involving a loved one. Horses are not aggressive creatures by nature. While they may fight for breeding rights or in perceived fear for their life, they don’t simply seek to hurt people for the hell of it. There is always an underlying reason for the aggressive actions of a horse. For yourself, this may mean that you are lashing out at family and friends who truly don’t deserve it.
Perhaps frustration has boiled over with work or other people and you are unfortunately unleashing it on those you love. A dream with an aggressive horse is an immediate sign to work on your problems before you do something you regret. A difficult horse who ends up kicking someone fatally isn’t often given another chance by its owners. Do not be the person who loses the love, trust, and respect of those you care about by senselessly lashing out. If it relates to someone you know, be patient and supportive while still making them aware this behavior is unacceptable.
Dreams about horses are typically wonders to behold and are a most welcome nighttime experience for most people. The meanings behind such dreams can vary as much as the colors of our world. How you feel within the dream is just as important as what is occurring within it. In some cases, your feelings are the best indicator of the ultimate meaning of the dream in question.
