I was reading this paragraph, and I saw this word and I don't know what does it mean. The story is about a girl whom lost her leg in an accident with a "horse Pilgrim". I can discern that it spouse to be someone fall from back of a horse or something like that, but what "Pilgrim" means here? And why it begins with capital letter?

  • I understand, but believe it or not, it was just one paragraph on a sheet of paper. nothing more. probably that was the reason I couldn't figure it out.

  • Mike90: Even that is useful information. You can always tell us, “I don’t know where this quote comes from; it was just a single paragraph on a sheet of paper.” Every little bit of contextual information helps.

It sounds like you are reading The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans.

Pilgrim is the name of the horse. This is why it is capitalised, and why you are reading about her "horse, Pilgrim".
