Do you dream about your horses?

I woke up this morning frantic.

Last night I took Rick to some weird producers establishment. Big fancy building with dozens of rooms, fancy circus horses, people everywhere. We waited in a room for her to come see Rick. He was bigger than normal and fancy, side stepping, neck arching, knew all kinds of tricks. We went out into a large room with carpet. There were barrel racers, hunter jumpers, actresses everywhere. Rick didn't have a halter on him, I led him with his mane. We were running around in circles, he was matching me step for step with his head arched down almost glued to my hip. I looked down and I was barefoot. We were awesome!
Then came the nightmare part!
I grabbed a bunch os silver straight wire and hooked it to his bridle (he was all the sudden tacked up) to lunge him. He did great until he ran into one of my apple trees (mysteriously appeared in the middle of the room) and took off!
The lady frowned at me so I took off running after him (we were all the sudden outside!).
We were at some really weird theme park/music festival/neighborhood. There were paved roads twisting up and down hills between the houses and I was freaking out that he would slip. I couldn't find him so I walked up to two little girls, they had seen him and told me they would show me where he was. So I stole their mothers white suburban and the two little girls, and drove around until we got to Chuckie Cheese's! We went in looking for Rick! Their mother showed up and was really miffed so she made me stop looking for my horse and come clean her house!

Whew, I was busy last night! And I didn't find Rick!

Do you have terrible or wonderful dreams about your horses? I do all the time, sometimes I dream about Rooster, it's always sad. Other times I dream about my first horse Sky and she has a dozen babies!!! Always crazy!

Nobody?
Guess I'm just a paranoid freak and they haunt me in my dreams! LOL!
I did have a dream where I was trying to trade one and I remember feeling desperate that they weren't good enough, then the person I was trying to trade to felt the same way! Woke up feeling awful.

I don't have my own horse but I have very detailed dreams about the yard I work at and the horses there a lot. It's quite annoying when I leave the yard for a bit and still dream about it.

You might be a paranoid freak but you are not alone. I have on many occasions had dreams about my horses. Some of them are good but sometimes I have had nightmares. One such nightmare that sticks out in my head was I dreamed that someone stole my horse. I would get glimpses of her but I could never catch up to her and I could hear her calling, screaming for help. I would run as fast as I could but it was like I had cement shoes, I couldn't go faster. I would see people hot shocking her and hear her screams but I couldn't save her. I woke up bawling.


The other night I had a soring dream. I am sure it is because of all the reading I have done on that barbaric treatment done to horses. I always want to protect all animals so I suppose the dreams show my fear of being unable to help everyone.

I prefer the happy dreams of galloping up a hill and seeing the beautiful tree colors or trotting into the lake and swimming with the horses. Something like that. Ha ha

Well, Rick is a character and I could see him auditioning. :)

I don't have weird dreams but do often have dreams about past rides, shows & horses I've loved and lost. The latter the most often :(

When I was 15-19, my parents bought me my first filly. I raised and trained her all by myself. When I was 19, I joined the AF and my parents decided to sell my horse rather than keep her until I got back. (I was stationed in Germany) After they sold her, I use to dream of her. It wasn't regularly...or anything like that. But I would dream of her. It was ALWAYS the same dream....for years. A few times over the last 15 years, I tried to find out where she was, but I never could find her. Just over a year ago, I dreamed she died. (I would have been 39, so she would have been 24 yrs old give or take.) I haven't dreamed of her since. :(

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yes. I especially love when I dream about my old gelding that died in 1994. I can smell him .. hear him .. FEEL him .. know every nuance of his gaits...

I used to dream about Mason dying a horrible death from a sudden illness or injury. I'd wake up crying and in a cold sweat and it would haunt me for a few days.
After Mason died in my arms, I dreamed of him every few nights for months. But these dreams were different. After he died, the dreams about him were peaceful, like riding him in the mountains again, his little hissy fits he had when he was in the best shape of his life, us swimming in the lake we used to....it was like my brain was reminding me of all the amazing memories I have of him and trying to help me heal and move on in life. The dreams felt so real, like I could feel his every move and hear his breath.

I had a dream last night that somebody gave me a registered AQHA world champion sorrel reining stud and a buckskin homozygous Tobiano barrel stud. Was freaking awesome, until my mares would just RANDOMLY appear in their pasture while I was working them and start peeing all over them O.o

Wow...very touching.

I went through the same thing when my gelding, Mango, passed away. He died a very gruesome death, suffocating on his own blood. The night after he passed away, I had a dream I was riding him...his lope was the same godly smooth, he tossed his head like he did and even crow hoped a few times...everything was all pastel colors, except for him; he was his beautiful summer red. But, then the ride was over, I untacked him and turned out into a big pasture, and he loped happily across the hills till I couldn't see him any more.

I don't have meaningful dreams...but that meant something to me.

I still have lots of dreams of him, but it's not like the dreams I had of him when he was alive. He is in my pasture still in all my dreams, but I can't touch him or talk to him. He's just there.... he's just in the background, my gaurdian angel in real life <3
