Riding:  The art of keeping a horse between you and the ground.  ~Author Unknown
fly by spin3cans
But its so much more than that isn’t it?

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses.  ~C.W. Anderson
good smell by jenah

No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.  ~Winston Churchill
Touch by BlakGrafix

People on horses look better than they are.  People in cars look worse than they are.  ~Marya Mannes

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.  ~Josephine Demott Robinson
Dawnie and Ravyn by ArienRavyn

Heaven is high and earth wide.  If you ride three feet higher above the ground than other men, you will know what that means.  ~Rudolf C. Binding
A Pondering Face by jessi27

He knows when you're happy
He knows when you're comfortable
He knows when you're confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.

The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears.  ~Arabian Proverb :thumb88633277:
Chase a fier by Equines

To ride a horse is to ride the sky.  ~Author Unknown
Better than flying by attlid

A horse loves freedom, and the weariest old work horse will roll on the ground or break into a lumbering gallop when he is turned loose into the open.  ~Gerald Raferty
:thumb71757916:

A lovely horse is always an experience.... It is an emotional experience of the kind that is spoiled by words.  ~Beryl Markham
With Or Without You by itsariot

The horses paw and prance and neigh,
Fillies and colts like kittens play,
And dance and toss their rippled manes
Shining and soft as silken skeins;...
~Oliver Wendell Holmes

A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.  ~Pam Brown
Leap In The Air by Jen2Cal

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
Out of my element by attlid
Mesa Verde Mustang Stallion by PBPhoenix

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.  ~William Shakespeare, Henry V

A canter is a cure for every evil.  ~Benjamin Disraeli
The Tempest beneath my feet. by Inyoni

In riding a horse we borrow freedom.  ~Helen Thomson

Feeling down?  Saddle up.  ~Author Unknown
Alone and sad by s-lilje  
Roll On Back by LNorwick

God forbid that I should go to any Heaven in which there are no horses.  ~R.B. Cunninghame Graham, letter to Theodore Roosevelt, 1917


You know horses are smarter than people.  You never heard of a horse going broke betting on people.  ~Will Rogers
Take The Lead by ziptothestar

To me, horses and freedom are synonymous.  ~Veryl Goodnight

Ponokomita IV by hunter1828

A horse can lend its rider the speed and strength he or she lacks, but the rider who is wise remembers it is no more than a loan.  ~Pam Brown

Good people get cheated, just as good horses get ridden.  ~Chinese Proverb
retrospection by arbebuk
:thumb83390000:

Spending that many hours in the saddle gave a man plenty of time to think.  That's why so many cowboys fancied themselves Philosophers.  ~Charles M. Russell


The horse is God's gift to mankind.  ~Arabian Proverb
water by ivecus
Number 7: Memories by natural-arab

In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have.  Eleven-hundred pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.  ~Author Unknown
What A team by RustedSpurs08

A woman needs two animals - the horse of her dreams and a jackass to pay for it.  ~Author Unknown
:thumb57489792:

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder
He carries me away from all my fears
And when the world threatens to fall asunder
His mane is there to wipe away my tears.
~Bonnie Lewis

The daughter who won't lift a finger in the house is the same child who cycles madly off in the pouring rain to spend all morning mucking out a stable.  ~Samantha Armstrong
Mystical by WildFire8

Men are better when riding, more just and more understanding, and more alert and more at ease and more under-taking, and better knowing of all countries and all passages; in short and long all good customs and manners cometh thereof, and the health of man and of his soul.  ~Attributed to Edward Plantagenet
Full Throttle by extraordinaryx

To learn all that a horse could teach, was a
world of knowledge, but only a beginning. .. .
Look into a horses eye and you instantly know
if you can trust him.
Mary O'Hara
All In An Eyes by JustRegency :thumb83280977: Ghostly eye by MackZ12 :thumb79617033: Sorrowful Life by ThE-uNiQuE Eye by zonneschijntje Blue Eyes by nor-julia

Round-hoof'd, short-jointed, fetlocks shag and long,
Broad breast, full eye, small head and nostril wide,
High crest, short ears, straight legs and passing strong,
Thin mane, thick tail, broad buttock, tender hide;
Look, what a horse should have he did not lack,
Save a proud rider on so proud a back.
William Shakespeare
world in my eyes by vadalein

To be loved by a horse, or by any animal, should fill us with awe-
for we have not deserved it.
Marion Garretty
Friendship Never Dies by jillsahner
In This Together. by ilovetosee
Tender Horses by PhilippeGaravel

A horse gallops with his lung,
Preserveres with his heart,
and wins with his character
Tesio
tongue by jenah

If training has not made a horse more beautiful, nobler in carriage, more
attentive in his behavior, revealing pleasure in his own
accomplishment...then he has not truly been schooled in dressage.
Col. Handler
Summerdance by attlid

No ride is ever the last one. No horse is ever the last one you will
have. Somehow there will always be other horses, other places to ride
them.
Monica Dickens

Show me your horse and I will tell you who you are.
Old English Saying

To err is human, to whinney equine.
-Cheryl Farner
what's up mom? by jenah

The horse will leap over trenches, will jump out of them, will do anything
else, provided one grants him praise and respite after his accomplishment.
Xenophon

Thats cool, they must really love you. A few of the young horses at our farm run over but mine tends to keep eating as she is a pig. When she has no food left she'll run over, probably asking for food though. XD Food is more important than I am. :D

Yeah, in my scraps I have a picture of one of the horses at the place I board eating my tripod. Another mare was very curious and sniffed the whole thing up and down (cam and tripod), and one gelding was scared of it.
