The horse goddess Epona originated in Gaul. But Her cult was so popular it quickly spread to Britain and as far east as Bulgaria,  she was the only Celtic diety to be worshiped in Rome, her feast day being the 18th of December. In Welsh tradition, Eponas equivalent is Rhiannon and in Ireland the goddeses Macha & Etain. She was known as both a protectress as well as the mother goddess who presided over the life cycle.
