horse quotes

Hi Everyone!

Just wondering if you have any favourite horse quotes - particularly witty ones! I saw this one in someone's signature... don't remember who 'there are only two things that scare horses; things that move and things that don't' lol it made me laugh! I'd love to hear any others that people have!

Well thank you kind person!

Another one that I've used is: "The problem with following the herd is stepping in what they leave behind"

What I've used on my signature in emails is: "There is a fine line between hobby and obsession ... guess which side of the line I'm on."

I like that one of yours, too, iridehorses! Hey, can I borrow your "following the herd" one?

I also like "there's nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse". (Or if you need to be politically correct...person.) :roll:

I really like this one:

If you have it, you have it for life. It is a disease for which there
Is no cure. You will go on riding even after they have to haul you
Onto a comfortable wise old cob, with feet like inverted buckets and a back like a fireside chair. ~ Monica Dickens

Good dressage is like grass growing. You don't see anything happening, but over time it becomes more beautiful. - Walter Zettl

Most certainly you can.

One that I say a lot (and in fact just used it in another post) is "The older I get the shorter my horse should be."

Someone I know (who has horses) always says to us:
'never put your money into anything that eats hay or rusts'

She says this in the context of horses getting hurt and needing expensive vet treatment or ripping expensive rugs etc lol I think its just so true!

Lol those are funny I have a really good one I picked up from another forum,

Listen to the stories of a once-in-a-lifetime horse; of journeys made and Challenge’s met. The best of horses rise to the challenges we set before them, asking little in return. Those who know them understand how fully a horse can hold a human heart.

This is a little exert from a whole paper that was written on why god takes our horses from us when its their time to go, and that is one of my favorite parts lol

To those outside our circle, it must seem strange. To see us in our muddy boots, who would guess such poetry lives in our hearts? We celebrate our companions with praiseworthy of heroes. Indeed, horses have the hearts of warriors and often carry us into and out of the fields of battle.

There is another one I like that one too lol
