The Great Poseidon Horses!

By: Katelyn

Everyone knows what horses are. Horses are basically ponies but bigger. They can carry heavy loads, are fast runners, and are lovely companions. But where exactly did horses come from? Are they really created by Poseidon? Why did he create them?

According to Greek mythology, there are two versions to the story. The first version is that Poseidon created horses as a present for Demeter, the goddess of harvest. Poseidon, even though already married, wanted to win over Demeter, so made the most beautiful creature ever. He didn’t succeed the first time, but at last created the horse. However, Poseidon eventually lost interest in Demeter.

The second tale is about the naming rights to the city of Cecropia. It is said that Poseidon was competing with Athena, the goddess of wisdom and war. The Greek gods decided that whoever produced the most useful gifts for humans would win the naming rights to the city. Poseidon then created the horse, tamed it, and taught the humans about horsemanship. Athena created an olive tree, and won the contest. The city Cecropia was then named Athens.

But are horses really created by Poseidon like mentioned in Greek mythology? Horses might actually be from nature, or like some Christian people say, horses are made by God and shaped out of mud. It is said that at the start of the world, God thought earth was too empty, so made one girl and one boy out of mud. He then breathed life into them, and thus started the human race. Are horses made the same way?

So, which one is the real one? Are horses created by Poseidon, made by nature, or created by God? In my opinion, I think that horses are made by nature, even though I don’t think anyone can figure out where the first horse came from. This question is just like the question, ” Did chickens come first, or did eggs come first?”
