3. [He puts the halter on the horse, with Vajasaneyi Samhita XXII, 3, 4,] “Encompassing thou art,”-therefore the offerer of the Ashvamedha conquers all the quarters;—“the world thou art,”—the world he thus conquers;—“a ruler thou art, an upholder,”—he thus makes him a ruler and upholder;—“go thou unto Agni Vaishvanara,”—he thus makes him go to Agni Vaishvanara (the friend of all men);—“of wide extent,”—he thus causes him to extend in offspring and cattle;—“consecrated by Svaha (hail!),”—this is the Vashat-call for it;—“good speed (to) thee for the gods!”—he thus makes it of good speed for the gods;—“for Prajapati,”—the horse is sacred to Prajapati: he thus supplies it with his own deity.
