Celtic Horses

To the Celts, the horse was one of the most important animal allies. Epona was the Celtic horse goddess whose authority extended even beyond death, assisting the soul on its final journey. Her cult was adopted by the Roman army and they spread her worship wherever they went. She was the only Celtic Goddess to be honored by the Romans with a temple in their capital city. Epona is depicted sitting side saddle or lying on a horse, or standing with multiple horses around her.
