If Wishes Were Horses: The Red Horse and the White Mare

Epona.net is a comprehensive one-stop-shop for all the known sources on the Gallo-Celtic horse goddess, Epona. There’s an on-line shrine complete with funky flute music here.

Devon, Maid of Epona has provided a prayer for the goddess here, and ideas for honouring her in ritual here.

Jane Badger has an interview with the author of the Jinny and Shantih books, Patricia Leitch, whose books are being reissued by Catnip Publishing. The covers for this new editions were shot by photographer Karen Budkiewicz, a fan of Leitch’s since childhood, who grew up to own her own chestnut Arab mare called Shantih: the horse you see on the new covers. The horse on the “horseshoe” series above is a stallion called Prince of Orange.

UPDATE: read about the real Finmory here!

This post relates to a chapter of the book If Wishes Were Horses: A Memoir of an Equine Obsession. If you have any questions to ask about the content, please fire away in the comments. The main online index for the book is here.
