The Horse in the Castle

A myth submitted to the site by Sophie

cardiff, wales

One day a young nine year old girl went to a castle in Wales where she saw a golden statue of a horse. The horses name seemed to be in a frame above the horse it read 'Prancer'. It was a beautiful statue.

One day the little girl named Emma visited the castle and the horse seemed to be making a noise. That night the maid in the castle saw the horse running around and she fainted.

The very next day Emma saw the horse again she stroked it and it run up the stairs back down and out the door, the maid came down and said to the girl, where's that statue gone deary! "It went out the door said Emma".
"Out the door? how could it of gone out the door? its a statue, it not real." b
But it was out the door, the maid fainted once more and the little girl screamed she phoned the ambulance and the maid died of shock! The horse was never seen in the castle again and it is said that the horse still runs around Wales looking for the little girl.

That was 60 years ago and nobody knows who that little girl was! The horse will not stop until he finds Emma, so if you see a golden statue of a horse running around Wales you know it is Prancer.
