Horse Is the Symbol of Intelligence: Divine Order of Chivalry Is the Order of Christ

The divine Order of Chivalry is the enemy of ascetic isolation and indifferentism. It is the Order of the Christ who goes about doing good. The Christian knight, mounted on a valiant steed (for the horse is the symbol of Intelligence), and equipped with the panoply of Michael, is the type of the spiritual life, – the life of heroic and active charity.” (Anna Kingsford.
