The vision of the horses (Zech 1:7-1:8)

“Zechariah said.

‘In the night,

I saw a man

Riding on a red horse!

He was standing

Among the myrtle trees

In the glen.

Behind him,

Were red horses,

Sorrel horses,

White horses.’”

Zechariah had this night vision about horses.  First, there was a man riding a red horse in the valley or glen that was filled with myrtle or evergreen trees.  Even more interesting was a series of other horses behind this rider.  While white horses might be common, the sight of red horses with sorrel or speckled horses seemed a bit strange.  What was this all about?
