The Wind Horse, according to Native American Legend, speaks of a horse honored in the Choctaw culture as being the fastest and kindest of all the Indian horses. The Wind Horse felt no fear and no one ever harmed him. If an Indian were wounded or needed a ride, the Wind Horse would carry them to safety.
One day the Wind Horse heard a cry for help. He ran to a clearing in the forest and came upon a young Indian Boy. The young boy had become caught in a bear trap and this trap had severed his foot. The boy could not walk and he was in serious trouble as he has lost a lot of blood. The Wind Horse went to the boy’s side and bent down so the boy could climb onto his back. The child could not believe that such a beautiful horse would befriend him. The boy was very scared because he could feel his life was slipping away, but as the young boy rode the wind on this beautiful horse, it was as if he were whole again, and supported by such kindness, it was just like being with family. The boy slipped in and out of two worlds as the horse gently went along the trail.
