Saint James Santiago - The warrior saint of Spain and the patron saint of horses and horsemen. Saint James is a national hero in Spain, having supposedly caused the Spanish victory against the Moors in the Battle of Clavijo in 834. According to legend, he is buried at Compostela in northwestern Spain, perhaps the most famous shrine in Europe during the Middle Ages. In many cases, Saint James is therefore shown as a pilgrim; but in the New World, his venerators more closely identified with his image as a horseman).A super popular charm or pendant, loved by all horse people. Made in the USA and comes in a gift box with this story of St. Santiago!

The charm is beautiful and shiny. Looks better in person than the picture, more finished, smooth. I have had this charm on a necklace since the late 1960's and it never comes off. It has kept me safe on and off the horses. At least that is how I feel. It sue is not ability. I bought this one for a college friend who had horses and rode and now has ovarian cancer . I am hoping this will give her a little lift and protection.
