Epona Weaves the Worlds
Ancient Europeans revered the horse
as the goddess, Epona,
who wed the fertility of the land to the fertility of the people,
who carried the sun across the sky
and the warrior on her back.
The faint memory of our reverence for the horse goddesslives today in our familiar word, pony.
No wonder so many of us are horse crazy,
whether we ride or not.
