Paganism & Wicca - What Is A Hedge And A Hedge-rider?

When people remove a forest for settlement, the hedge acts as a barrier between untamed nature and “civilization.” 


  • Depending on your point of view, the hedge is either a holy space brimming with liminal power or a dangerous zone where dangerous things lurk. 
  • Witches were said to live (or at least spend a lot of time) in the hedge in either scenario. 
  • A Hedge-rider is a Northern European equivalent of witch, meaning "woman who rides the hedge."
