Got Spring Racing Carnival fever? The track is not the only place the horse can bring you joy.
For centuries, the horse has been a symbol of power, nobility and honour. It has always been considered indispensable to man, and continues to be worshiped and revered in cultures throughout the world. Many believe the horse is magical, full of wisdom and messages, and numerous books have been penned about the power of the horse to heal us psychologically.
The horse is also believed to be of power in the home. Feng Shui expert, Derelle Ball, tells us that in Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese practice of creating a harmonious, healthy and prosperous environment, the Horse “symbolically represents independence, endurance, speed and safe travels”. Elsewhere in the ancient art, it is believed to bring the energy of success, fame, freedom and strength.
No matter how you plan on finding your Spring happiness, we have found ways to bring this majestic animal into your home. No reins required.
