Signed l/r: © Lang OPAM. Medicine men had a variety of methods to instill blessings, health, speed, and power onto a horse. Many had received their power through personal visions or had purchased/inherited their horse medicine through a previous shaman. Many warriors would seek to have their horse(s) blessed by a medicine man who had a high degree of success with instilling supernatural attributes onto a horse. This medicine man first blesses the horse with burning sage so that he and the horse would be receptive to the Great Mystery. With his horse medicine bundle lying on a nearby buffalo skull, he then sings, prays, and chants a blessing upon the horse. © Steven Lang
