There is a time to rest and a time to run and a lot of living in between.  A horse can teach you how to enjoy the sweet apple that drops from the tree before taking on that next challenge.

Having a horse as your spirit animal can mean different things to different people, and even different things at different times in your life. Look at two pictures of a horse, one wild and one tame. Which are you drawn to?
