I feel the difference in myself from working with the horse last Friday. I feel layers and layers, depths and depths. I am dreaming of horses, and that seems a good thing.
I google and find more horse quotes. Enjoy, and maybe head out for a ride!!
When I looked at life from the saddle, it was as near to heaven as it was possible to be.
Frances, Countess of Warwick
The horses of Achilles stood apart from their battle weeping, because they had learned that their charioteer had fallen in the dust by the hand of man-slaying Hector. When Zeus saw how they grieved, he took pity on them. "Poor creatures, why did I give you to King Peleus, a mortal destined to die…you who are immortal."
Homer, The Iliad
Where in this world can man find nobility without pride, friendship without envy, beauty without vanity? Here, where grace is laced with muscle, and strength by gentleness confined. He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity. There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent; there is nothing so quick, nothing more patient. England's past has been borne on his back. All our history is his industry; we are his heirs, he is our inheritance. Ladies and Gentlemen: The HORSE!

Some people think horses are dumb. Ability and intelligence are in all horses, regardless of breed. Their so-called stupidity stems from our poor communication. Training a horse is like drawing a picture. The better I draw the picture, the better the communication. If I'm drawing a horse in pencil, I've communicated something. If I add crayon to my drawing, you can then tell that the horse I've drawn is a Palomino. Does that mean that you've gotten smarter? No. It means that I've become a better communicator.
I don't help people with horse problems, I help horses with people problems.
Nicolas Evans, The Horse Whisperer
A lovely horse is always an experience….It is an emotional experience of the kind that is spoiled by words.
A perfect book on riding could be written only by a horse!

Horses leave hoofprints on your heart.
Horses are karmic and they come to us in our lives karmically, when it is time for us truly to learn.
