Candle Lighting For Your Heavenly Horse


As my candle, burning bright
Sends shadows off on this dark night
It offers peace, and hope and love
To the horses dancing up above.

My prayers and thoughts will help them find
Beloved friends they left behind.
So they may comfort us in turn,
And thus it is my candle burns.

With quiet tears, lovingly shed
I hear the horses, overhead.
Their pounding hooves are thunder stirred,
For another friend has joined the herd.

Lighting a candle for a loved one who has gone on ahead is an ancient, healing ritual for those who remain behind. The eternal flickering flame of your candle is a reminder that you and your horse will forever be united. And the warm light from your horse's candle lets you know his/her spirit lives on always.

This is a first step you can take to begin to move from the grief of the death of your horse to honoring the gift of his life. You are welcome to light a candle here for each horse you have loved in your lifetime who has gone on ahead. We currently have almost 4,000 candles burning. Please take a moment to acknowledge the candle lightings for the other heavenly horses as you remember and honor your own.

PLEASE NOTE: The most recently lit candles are on the highest numbered page.
