The White Horse - A Newfoundland tale of superstition and loss

A fisherman named Albert has a strange encounter with a phantom white horse. Only too late does he realize what terrible tragedy the ghost horse presaged. This traditional tale of superstition and folk belief from Proctor’s Cove, Placentia Bay, Newfoundland, originally recorded in the 1920s, is here retold by folklorist and storyteller Dale Jarvis, and is taken from his book “Haunted Waters: More True Ghost Stories of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The music track for the tale is “Salted Caramel” by Black Twig Pickers and Steve Gunn, and is licensed under a Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 International License. Additional sound effects by swiftoid and geoneo0 of Photo "White Horse" by Richard PJ Lambert/Flickr (CC BY 2.0).
