Horse Quotes -

My brother sends this quote by either Teddy Roosevelt or Winston Churchill. "There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man." I am guessing Teddy said it first, and Winston picked up on it, but it is more often attributed to Churchill than Roosevelt on Google. No matter who said it first, I agree.

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!
Robert Duncan's "Tribute to the Horse" Read at the conclusion of every Horse of the Year show in London

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.
John Lyons

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.
Beryl Markam

A perfect book on riding could be written only by a horse!
Vladimir S. Littauer

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.
Dominique Barbier
