So Kjrsos is what we called them first. Kjrsos came before the word horse, Cheval, Caballo, Pferd, even before the Latin Equus. It is the word used to describe this creature that thundered across the land. It was the word used when humans first thought to move from hunting the horse for food, inspired instead to find a connection, a new relationship that allowed them to first climb on the back of the horse.  It is a language that hundreds of languages are based upon.  For many of us, it is our common heritage. A word that goes back thousands of years in human history.

Kjrsos is.. the phonetic spelling of Ḱrsos. Notice the accented K.  Although for all we know Kjrsos is the correct spelling since it is from a language long extinct. 

When we began looking for what to call what it is that we do, and who we are, there is no better answer than the word horse.  The one who has the answers.  But horse comes from a language called English.  We asked ourselves so which word representing horse do we use, and why would we use one before the other.  Then we discovered that one language that was the base language of these and more, the base of over 400 languages, although with the great passage of time some are already long extinct today. That language that came first is PIE.  PIE short for Proto Indo-European, a language first spoken by a people that many linguists and archaeologists agree became so widespread because its speakers were able to migrate into a vast area of Europe and Asia thanks in part to the domestication of the horse.

So Kjrsos is what we called them first.  What we call in English the "horse." What more beautiful and powerful word to use, the word that came first.  Kjesos came before the word horse, , Cavalo ~ Portuguese, Cabalo ~ Galician, ձին ~ Armenian, even before the Greek ձին. It is the word used to describe this creature that thundered across the land. It was the word used when humans first thought to move from hunting the horse for food, inspired instead to find a connection, a new relationship that allowed them to first climb on the back of the horse.  It is a language that hundreds of languages are based upon.  For many of us, it is our common heritage. A word that goes back thousands of years in human history.

There is some belief that the people of the time would not name those things that were most important to them.  So rather than give the horse a direct name, the name is not a naming but a representation of what and who the horse is.  The word they choose in essence means the one that runs, that gallops out freely, powerfully. Celebrating free flowing powerful movement, as Kjrsos is based on the word "kers" - to run. A word where the name for what we call the horse, or Pferd, etc., is based on movement. On the heart-lifting sight of muscles flowing, manes whipping in the wind, tails streaming out behind them. It is this vision and our joy in movement that makes our hearts fall in love with the horse all over again.

Languages might be gone such as Dardic, Albanian, Slavic, Gallic, Celtic but we can still pay homage to our ancestors that came before us.
