What does it mean to dream of a horse?
Horses are gentle and noble animals present in much of our history. Therefore, these dreams don't usually symbolize threatening or dangerous states or situations. In fact, dreaming about horses is related to freedom, autonomy, security and power.
However, this may vary depending on the course of your dream. That's why we're going to dive deeper into the most common horse dreams and their meaning. Continue reading to learn more about the meaning of dreaming about horses.
Dreaming about horses you could control
Dreaming of horses that the dreamer controls indicates that the dreamer has control of their actions, emotions and feelings. Horses symbolize strength, freedom and energy. They are animals that must be tamed, since their natural tendency is to be wild. But when someone knows when and how to tame a horse, they eventually submit and begin to trust the person.
Horses are also very sensitive animals. They can feel the emotions that humans around them feel. That is why it's also difficult to tame a horse. One must be confident and dominant, yet also kind so a horse can submit themselves and also respect and trust that person. This is why if you dreamt of a tamed horse that trusted you, you must also be feeling emotional balance in your life.
Dreaming about horses you couldn't control
If you've dreamt of the opposite, a horse you cannot control, then the effect would be the contrary. In this dream you may have felt lost, out of control, scared or even threatened. Perhaps something has happened in your life that made you feel insecure in some aspect in your life.
Dreaming of untamed horses you can't control may indicate that there is uncertainty in your life and that you're feeling worried about something. A wild horse is hard to control. They can sense your insecurities and will not obey easily. This can be frustrating, dangerous and scary. Try to relate these emotions with what's happening in your life to understand why you dreamt of horses.
Dreaming about free horses
Dreaming of horses trotting through the meadows, in a herd or not, symbolizes freedom, energy and beauty. By dreaming of horses that are free in nature, we can interpret that that is how you're feeling, at peace and happy. Some may even say that this dream can mean that you are also feeling passionate about something.
Therefore, it's best to analyse what's going on in your life and ask yourself if these are the emotions you are feeling and what are they directed to? Dreams can help us realise and understand how our subconscious is reacting to certain aspects of our life.
Dreaming about horse racing
Dreaming of horse racing symbolizes ambition, competitiveness and the ability to tame emotions in order to achieve your goals. People who have this type of dream are usually ambitious people and have a very clear idea of what they want. They are able to use their instincts and emotions to their advantage to achieve their goals. They are also generally active people, with initiative and determination. These are all useful qualities for life.
On the other hand, if you dreamt about betting on a horse race, this dream may be directed towards taking chances. Maybe it's a business, a relationship or something else, where you had to put something on the line in order to achieve your dreams. If that's the case, your dream shows your enthusiasm, dedication, bravery and ambition.
