What Does It Mean When You Dream about Horses?

Dreams about horses can have various meanings, depending on the context. Have you been dreaming about horses? Wondering what it might mean?

Maybe your spirit animal is a horse. Maybe you used to be a horse in a former life. Maybe you should go bet your life savings on some horse in a race.

What could this horsey dream mean? We’ll give you a few possible meanings, but remember: always add some salt.

1. You feel free, powerful, and invincible

Horses are animals that represent pure, unbridled power. You’ve heard the term “horsepower,” right? Well there’s a reason it exists. If you’re dreaming about a horse, it could be that you are feeling very powerful, and invincible.

You feel you can surmount any obstacle that life throws your way. You feel you simply can’t be tamed. This is good! There’s much you can achieve in this frame of mind, and you should ride it – pun intended – as long and as hard as you can!

2. You’re about to become really prosperous!

Might there be some business venture you’re about to undertake? Did you just dream about a white horse? Then here’s some great news – whatever it is you’re doing, is going to be very successful!

Be careful when interpreting this white horse dream though. If the horse is white, lean, and a bit dirty, then there’s a chance it means something else – being betrayed by a jealous friend or woman.

3. You have a great need to express your sexuality

Have you been repressing your sexual side, for whatever reason? Dreaming of horses could signify the passion you’ve kept bottled up inside you, for whatever reason – work, religion, or something else.

It’s your subconscious mind asking you to face the truth about this side of yourself. You need to be okay with the fact that humans are sexual creatures. You’re human. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

4. You have a loyal friend

Perhaps you’re going through a time in your life where you’re unsure who to turn to. Dreaming of a horse at this time is your subconscious mind’s way of telling you that you have a friend you can depend on around.

So if you’re feeling all alone, stop and think for a moment. Who is that one person you can turn to, that could help you lighten the emotional burden you’re carrying around? Maybe it’s time to pay them a visit and talk it out.

5. You’re scared of your passion

If you dream of a horse that is wild, unbridled, and just plain stubborn, you could be looking at a metaphor for the deep passions you have, which you have either deliberately suppressed, or found yourself unable to express, for one reason or the other.

If you have locked up your passion in a cage, underground, and thrown away the key, then do yourself a favor. Get back to it. Nurture it. Our passions hold the key to our success and fulfillment in life. Deny them, and life is sure to be one utterly unpleasant ride.
