Horse can run very swiftly and provide the ride for people. It was a good transportation to bring people to their destination. Therefore, Chinese treat horse as an auspicious symbol for speedy success.
War horse can help people to win the battle. Racing horse can help people to win the honor. Horse can do the farming job for farmers. It also can perform the entertainment for us. However, the Horse must be trained first, then become useful to human. Without human ride on it, the horse doesn't know where to go.
Dragon and Horse are auspicious symbols to Chinese. Chinese said that the best flyer is the sky is Dragon and the best runner on the ground is Horse. Dragon and Horse are the symbols of high-rank, outstanding, noble and leadership. Chinese history book said Horse has 30 percents of Dragon personality. More than 8-foot tall Horse is called Dragon-Horse. A person with Dragon-Horse Spirit doesn't mean only a person with full energy as the Dragon-Horse, but also, a person pushing himself to transcend his potential to hold the leadership.
Chinese like to look for Dragon-Horse, which is the sturdy and beautiful stallion. The stallion must be tall and be able to outrun other horses. If the stallion can run one-thousand--Chinese-mile (about 312 miles) a day, then it called one-thousand--Chinese-mile Horse, which means winged steed. Today, when a person is called one-thousand--Chinese-mile Horse, that means the person is a hard-to-find, outstanding, experienced elite and knows how to run the business.
