From the artist: "Native Americans often made Spirit Horses to honor a fallen horse, in hopes that the spirit of the horse would follow them in life. They should gain the strength and power of their fallen friend. These effigies would be used in ceremonies, for healing and often carried into battle. After a Spirit Horse is made, it is believed that the horse will take on a spirit of its own."
