Believed to have special powers, the Medicine Hat horse is a sight to be seen. These beautiful animals are noted for their markings. They have a white face with a colored patch covering their ears and head. This special color was prized in Native American tribes.
Native American legends say that Medicine Hat horses were believed to have the magical ability to protect their riders from injury and death in battle. Additionally, they were said to warn their riders of danger. Other tribes would try to steal these horses in hopes of getting their good luck. For this reason, they were closely guarded.
Medicine Hat horses can have other markings like a ‘shield’ on their chest. Those with one or two blue eyes were prized even more!
Whether they have magical powers or not, there is no mistaking their beauty. Check out some of these amazing horses.
