3 Spiritual Meanings of Having Dreams About Horses

Horses are symbolic of courage, strength, persistence, and conflict (Job 39:19-22). Having dreams about horses means you will run into obstacles that require your faith in God to persevere.

In the Bible, horses were almost exclusively mentioned in battle scenes or times of war. They symbolize bravery and do not hesitate to act when called upon. When others are scared, they are fearless.

Many believe that dreams are messages from God in response to your thoughts or prayers. When you have a dream about horses, take a moment to think about what message God is trying to send you.

Here are 3 possible spiritual meanings of having dreams about horses:

1. You Have a Very Strong Personality

Dreaming of horses is a sign that you have a strong personality. You are not afraid to fight for what you believe in.

This trait is most common in those that have dreams about white horses. In the bible white horses are symbolic of conquest and victory.

For example, Revelation 6:2 says “I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.”

You are passionate about helping others in need. More specifically, you often speak out in support of people that are under attack from criticism.

While you are proud of the battles you’ve won, they haven’t all been easy. In fact, you’ve lost friends along the way over a difference in opinion.

Having disagreements with those close to you is difficult for you to deal with. Many people see you as strong and courageous on the outside. But the reality is that you often worry about what others think of you.

Seeing a white horse in your dream is a sign that you should remain resolute and tackle conflict head-on.

2. You Will Meet Your Soulmate

If you see a brown or black horse in your dreams, this tells me much about your past relationships.

There have been many ups and downs in your romantic life. Despite this, you still have hope for the future. You know your soulmate is out there waiting for you.

Seeing a horse in your dream can be a sign that you see yourself as romantic despite your past experiences.

You often imagine what your life might be like when you meet the man or woman of your dreams. The heartbreak you’ve experienced so far will be nothing compared to the amount of joy you will feel soon.

Watch closely for messages from your guardian angel about your soulmate. You may begin seeing angel numbers or signs when your soulmate is thinking about you.

3. Your Pain Will Be Relieved Soon

When you dream of riding a horse this can be a sign that you may be experiencing some sort of leg or foot pain. The discomfort in your feet may be caused by an injury or a specific pair of shoes you like to wear.

Riding a horse in your dream is symbolic of the pain relief you will soon experience. You will be taken off your feet and given time to heal, whether you like it or not.

The bible reminds us that God will guide us during times of struggle and pain. Isaiah 63:13 ESV, “Who led them through the depths? Like a horse in the desert, they did not stumble.”

You may struggle to complete your daily tasks due to this new disability. Things that were easy before, are now difficult. However, relief will arrive soon. You will soon be able to return to your normal way of life without discomfort.

If you are currently dealing with pain in your legs or feet, seeing a horse in your dream is a good sign.
