I have some good friends who are Lakota Sioux. A few years ago I was visiting Pine Ridge, and I met a young girl (she was about 25) whose grandmother had been quite ill. The girl prayed and undertook a vision quest. While praying, she saw a wolf pup run up to her grandmother's bed and grab something in it's teeth. It began shaking it violently and growling ferociously. (You know how puppies will shake a toy back and forth? It's like they just go crazy!)
She said a medicine man told her it was a guardian animal. It took the sickness away. The grandmother healed.
On that visit, my nephew (who was about 9 years old then) and I were sitting outside on a picnic table. A huge hawk landed on an adjacent table about 10 feet from my nephew and just flat-out stared at him for about 30 seconds, then took a couple hops and flew away. I don't know if that was "significant", but it was very cool.

your OP was a satisifying read
indeed, horse as an animal spirit guide is probably correct... since horse made itelf available to you and you in turn accepted horse spirit
in ordinary reality Owl & Turtle came to m, or at least i recognised them as making their spirit availabe to me
and i chose to follow their 'advice'... now 'cave-bear' is extinct so the only explaination i have is that Cave-bear animal guide came to me in one of my non-ordinary reality journeys
the wolf & the martial arts post is a real world testimony that the anima l spirit guide prowess... can be emulated by a person...if they really believe and practice that determination in modern world circumstances, situations
sorta like Zen --- become 'horse' and jogging will become an enjoyment & less of a labor or task thing
Owl...in my case shows up all over the place...as if owl were a ghost always around me but only being visible on occasion
