There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
Spring and summer are riding on a piebald mare.
~ Russian Proverb
No philosophers so thoroughly comprehend us as horses.
The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire.
~Sharon Ralls Lemon
The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears.
~ Arabian proverb
For horses can educate through first hand, subjective, personal experiences, unlike human tutors, teachers, and professors can ever do. Horses can build character, not merely urge one to improve on it. Horses forge the mind, the character, the emotions and inner lives of humans. People can talk to one another about all these things and remain distanced and lonesome . In partnership with a horse, one is seldom lacking for thought, emotion and inspiration. One is always attended by a great companion.
~Charles de Kunffy
In riding a horse we borrow freedom.
