There is a long-standing tradition in areas associated with horse worship connecting horses to the God of the Sea.

- Greek and Roman Mythology has Poseidon as God of the Sea AND HORSES
- Norse Mythology has Loki as both the God of the Sea AND CAN SHAPESHIFT INTO BEING A HORSE
- Hindu Rigveda (the Indian Vedic hymn) has the God Trita which is God of the Sea AND HORSES

Furthermore, areas associated with horse worship are, pretty much, always associated with stone circles. Indeed, the more stone circles an area has, the more intense the worship of horses.

Furthermore, French archaeologist Patrice Menial has demonstrated from bones excavated that the lack of horse bones shows that ancient man in these areas NEVER ate horses… but just about everything else.at that time. In Uffington, a giant horse is cut into the landscape dating from the bronze age.

WHY?

Were stone circles giant dynamos built by ET’s with armatures pulled by horses?

Primative men who might have seen aliens using horses to turn the armature might have concluded that not only the aliens but also the horses were gods. Furthermore, could this electricity have been used to generate hydrogen for the purposes of creating lifting vehicles like balloons or Zeppelins, capable of moving the vast stones for assembly into pyramids etc found elsewhere in the world? Consider the violence of water being electrolysed – the voltage causes turbulently raging, might have given rise to the belief that horses were gods who had powers over water, the seas and the oceans.

It is also worth considering that not only are the stones in stone circles invariably magnetic, but the circles are ALWAYS only found near plentiful sources of horses and water, particularly salt water.

This has to be the craziest idea I've ever heard. Crazy doesn't mean untrue. I'm going to be thinking about this while I'm out and about this morning.

I don't think that this can be applied to the Eurasian land mass where the greatest use of horses was and is made and it is from those peoples that the horse, largely, originated as we know it today.

What you may have identified though is evidence of syncretism. You will find similar patterns throughout the world, Fisher-king to Shepherd is one such example, and it is really a reflection of the changing nature of economies, and leadership. So where you have found these hybrids, it is possible that these areas were overtaken or occupied by horse-men, who brought their belief systems when they took over those areas trade. You will find similar mergers with the seafaring peoples and bull worship...the Salic Franks worshipped a bull-headed sea monster for example.

There was a project investigating the possibility of training African wildlife for use in harness. The purpose was to enable farming to be carried out in areas that were too hot for horses and unsuitable for cattle due to tsetse fly. There was some limited success with Zebra. Other than that it was a complete failure. I wasn't told any details of the failures but the look on the face of the gentleman who'd been part of this project suggested some of these failures would have made good youtube material. There's something about horses that makes them particularly suitable for work in harness.

Since we're in that weird part of ATS I'll suggest horses may have been genetically modified by aliens to make them more suitable for harness work, perhaps to generate electricity and manufacture hydrogen. I've long suspected we were bred by aliens to be monkey miners. Now that we've mined huge quantities of gold and obediently stored it in centralised warehouses from where much of it appears to have gone missing we're no longer needed. Many of us suspect the missing gold has gone off-planet. The aliens need the gold for practical uses. We're being set up for destruction with crazy nuclear power stations, 'spent' rods stored on top of the reactors. Popping these reactors one after another will get rid of the monkey miners before they build a spaceship and go looking for their wages.

Trita as indicated in your Post, is ofcourse a diety, but a minor one.
But funny thing is that the God of the seas, waters, sky - varuna, is a seperate entity. varuna is described as an Asura in one portion of the Rig veda while in other prtions mentioned as a Deva.

This indicates the changing attitudes towards the pantheon. varuna who is an Asura in earliest editions of the rig veda, morphs into a deva in the later editions.

trita is minor when compared to varuna.

trita means "thrid"

have detailed in the following link

Trita in Vedic Mythology


But to consider Trita on par with Poseidon, Loki etc based on assumptions is not correct. Trita has just got around 40 passages in the Rig Veda. All information on Trita is based on assumptions arrived at from these 40 Passages.

The importance is not the importance of the deity, it is that the deity of the sea is regularly associated with horses.

if one culture has a deity associated with sea/water and horses, and another culture has a similar deity, it doesn't imply that these two deities are connected. it is just coincidence.

Poseidon is compared to Varuna and not Trita. Even this comparison is based on assumptions.

Not at all. The Ancient Britons developed their worship of the horse long before the formation of the ROman empire who gained their deities form Greece, a place that had almost no contact with Britain which they termed the "Ultimate Isles" and who certainly gained NOTHING in terms of culture or religion form the blue-stained warriors who lived there.

Furthermore, how is it that the Greeks never spread their belief in horse and sea connected deities to Egypt or, say the Persians, empires that had no stone circles when they had close contact with both and even ruled the Persians for a while.

The Al-Maqar from Saudi Arabia was a horsetribe that existed 9000 years ago.

They made various figures resembling horses, so it is possible these animals was object of worship as well as work.

There are stone circles in Iran and Egypt

Darab stone circle

Nabta stone circle in Egypt

Now that is very interesting indeed, I didn't know about those at all. And the first link in particular is highly fortuitous as it is relevent to something I am currently researching. Very interesting. Thank you.

A considerable amount of doubt exists about the accuracy of that popular notion.

Sorry, but I've gotta say I'm among the naysayers on this one. The notion that ancient humans saw horses as divine because they created turbulent electro water strikes me as unlikely, because if the humans themselves built the turbines, then wouldn't they know the mechanics of it and realize that the horses were just used as turbine turners, but engineering is what churns the water. And the humans put the horses there in the first place. I wouldn't make my God into a slave and turn a wheel all day long if I knew what was best for me
