Favorite Quotes - Horsey or not
So, I'm a bit of a nerd and have a white board in my barn that I like to put inspirational quotes on for myself and my students. Always looking for new ones, so please share!

Here's what is currently on my board:

"The road to success is always under construction"

"Choose your attitude at the door, your horse & instructor will thank you for it"

"Elbow grease is the best tool in your grooming kit."

"Whether You Think You Can or Can't, You're Right"--Henry Ford

Kevinshorses used to have one in his signature from a paraphrase of Tom Dorance concerning horsemanship

It's knowing what happened before what happened, happened.

Think about what happened just before what happened, happened.
