Enbarr

Enbarr of the Flowing Mane is a beautiful horse from Celtic mythology. He is associated with the great Celtic sea god, Manannan mac Lir. The Isle of Man was the throne of Manannan, and the island takes its name from him.

Enbarr could travel like over land and sea. He is sometimes referred to as Finbar. He was as swift as the wind.

Manannan lent his horse to his foster son, the great warrior, Lugh. Lugh is an important god of Irish mythology. He is associated with the Arts, truth and the law. He is said to have invented horse racing, but no creature would ever be as fleet of foot as Enbarr.
