Flying horse PEGASUS is known to us through myths and legends of Ancient Greece. He could carry his rider across the sky faster than the wind. Could create a spring of purest water with one stroke of his hoof to the rock. White-winged stallion is the embodiment of wisdom, fame, creativity and poetic inspiration.
According to legend, PEGASUS was born at the end of the world near the source of the ancient ocean. In this place, Perseus fought Medusa and cut off her head. At this moment the stallion sprang from her blood, and he was as rapid as a torrent and as white as sea foam.
Many wanted to catch the wild steed. No one could keep up with such a nimble creature, capable in an instant to soar to the clouds. The only lucky was Bellerophon, who with the help of Athena’s gift – a magical golden bridle, curbed and tamed the winged horse. Riding PEGASUS, the hero was able to fly up to a terrible fire-breathing Chimera.

However, the proud young man was not satisfied with his heroic deed and decided to get to Olympus and take a place among the gods. Angered by such incredible arrogance, crafty Zeus sent a bee to meet Bellerophon on his way up, which did not touch the man, but stung his steed. Mad with pain, PEGASUS threw off his rider, but managed to fly to the top of the mountain. Thus he got the right to visit Olympus and began to deliver thunder and lightning for Zeus.
In the realm of men PEGASUS lived on mount Helicon. In the grove on the slopes of the mountain the frisky stallion struck his hoof on the stone, and a source with clean and delicious water opened on that very spot. It was called Hippocrene, a “horse spring”, and in those days it quenched the thirst of the Muses and gave them strength and energy. Later it became a household name and an inspiring symbol for poets seeking ideas for their work.
