What does it mean to be born in the Year of the Horse?
The horse is the Chinese zodiac’s sixth animal. In Chinese tradition, the horse represents power, beauty, and freedom. Horses are high-spirited, lively, and energetic people who were born in the year of the horse. People like them because of their passion and upbeat demeanor. That is why persons born in the year of the horse prefer to be the center of attention and enjoy the companionship of those around them.
Because horses are impatient and have a short temper, their moods can shift fast. Because the horse requires a great deal of freedom and independence, it is difficult for them to adjust to a timetable set by someone else. They have a quick and bright mind, which allows them to spot patterns and predict what you’re thinking before you say it.

What does it mean to be a Fire Horse Woman?
Is it possible that being born in an unfavorable year will become a self-fulfilling prophecy? That may have been the fate of Japanese females born in 1966, the year of the fire horse, or hinoeuma in Japanese.
Superstition claims that women born in such a year have troublesome marriages, abuse men, and cause their husbands and dads to die young. According to folklore, it was one of these women who nearly burned down the capital in 1682 after setting fire to a small temple for the love of a guy who worked there. (She was imprisoned and sentenced to be burned at the stake.)
Hiroyuki Yamada of Osaka University and Satoshi Shimizutani of Japan’s Gender Equality Bureau conducted a study in 2010 to see how women born in 1966, the most recent year of the fire horse, fared. The researchers discovered that the women were more likely to have been divorced than their peers their age (born just a few years before or after). They were also less likely to have completed higher education and had a lower average household income of roughly 500,000 yen (around $5,000).
Are horses fortunate?
Over the years, we’ve all heard a lot of old wives’ tales and superstitions, including saluting lone magpies, not crossing a black cat’s path, destroying a mirror bringing bad luck, and horseshoes bringing good luck. Here are a few horsey ones that people used to believe and, I’m sure some still believe….
Luck & Good Fortune…
- Horseshoes are seen to be lucky, as previously stated. According to some traditions, they can bring good luck, ward off evil, and even prevent nightmares!
- Hang a horseshoe with the points facing up to keep the good luck in (if you hang it upside down, the luck runs out)
- Talismans formed from a horseshoe nail curved into a circle are also considered lucky!
- Bringing a horse (particularly a grey) into your home will ward off evil and bring good fortune.
- A horse with an indentation in its neck is thought to be lucky…the indentation is known as a Devil’s thumb print, and the horse is said to be lucky since it is said to have survived a meeting with the Devil!
- When a bride or groom sees a grey horse on their approach to the church, it is seen to be a good omen and a sign of good fortune for their marriage.
‘Good’ horse, or ‘Bad’ horse?…
- Buy the horse with one white foot. Try the horse with two white feet. Be aware of the horse with three white feet. Avoid the horse with four white feet!
(I can’t say I agree with these because some of the nicest horses I’ve cared after over the years have been roman-nosed chestnut mares or had four white stockings!)
Sicknesses & Cures…
- A horse neighing at a house’s door is a bad omen for its occupants; they will grow ill.
- Worms can be healed by eating hair from the forelock or horse hair cut into bread and butter.
- Toothaches and snake bites can be relieved by riding a horse or donkey backwards.
- Many years ago, people believed that drinking fresh milk mixed with dried and crushed horse’s chestnuts might cure cancer!
(Perhaps the final one is true if it’s used to cut off the blood supply?)
Protection from Witches & Evil…
In the ‘olden days,’ witches and warding off the Devil seemed to be a major preoccupation…
- Wearing a black stallion’s tail hair as a bracelet will protect you against witches.
- Horse brasses repel witches and reflect the Devil’s glance away from the home and those who wear them.
- If you tie a nail to a hair from the mare’s tail and hold it above the mare’s hindquarters, it swings in a circle, it’s a filly, if it swings back and forth, it’s a colt, and if it doesn’t move, the mare isn’t in foal.
- When you see a white horse, make a wish (however white horses are considered a death omen in other cultures!)
- If you geld a stallion without looking, one testicle should be tossed eastward and the other westward, or you’ll end up with a rig, or ‘proud cut’ horse.
So there you have it… some genuinely strange horse-related myths and folklore!
