It is no surprise that you can almost always find paintings and sculptures of horses in Chinese homes and businesses.
In Feng Shui, the horses are usually classified into Tribute Horse and Victory Horse.
In ancient China, the Chinese had always associated the tribute horse with gifts given to emperors and high officials, brought by the vanquished to the victors after wars and battles. The tribute horse are seen decorated with robes, laden with valuables such as gold ingots, pearls, gems, gold coins and etc., which represents the aspiration of a comfortable life. The tribute horse brings fame, recognition and triumph over competitors, ensuring your talents and hard work are acknowledged and rewarded.
On the other hand, Victory horses are shown galloping, running upwards signifying upward mobility and promotion, steady and speedy climb to fame and success in career and life. Sometimes they are depicted with birds at their feet, suggesting that the horses are running as fast as the bird can fly. This symbolizes success at an accelerated rate!
