I absolutely love horses. However I haven’t had a chance to be around them too often. Every time I come across a horse I must stroke his nose and look into those big liquid eyes. There is just something about horses which attracts me to them. I have been on a horse just once in my life and it was an experience I will never forget. The place where I live now in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia would be a great place to have a horse because there are lots of dirt roads here which have hardly any traffic but horses are expensive to buy and to keep so I will just adore them when I can. Found some interesting horse quotes which I want to share with you.
Winston Churchill – There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.
Robert Smith Surtees – There is no secret so close as that between a rider and his horse.
Nicholas Evans – It’s a lot like nuts and bolts. If the rider’s nuts, the horse bolts!
Mark Twain – I can always tell which is the front end of a horse, but beyond that, my art is not above the ordinary.
Pam Brown – 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.
Abraham Lincoln – I can make a General in five minutes but a good horse is hard to replace.
Dale Carnegie – Did you ever see an unhappy horse? Did you ever see bird that had the blues? One reason why birds and horses are not unhappy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses.
Groucho Marx – I would horsewhip you if I had a horse.
W. C. Fields – Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people.
Ralph Waldo Emerson – Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of Solitaire. It is a grand passion.
R. Graham – God forbid that I should go to a Heaven in which there are no horses.
William Shakespeare – He doth nothing but talk of his horses.
Sir Walter Scott – Dear to me is my bonnie white steed; Oft has he helped me at pinch of need.
Katie Crozier – Galloping smoothly across the lush green grass, my heart rides through life itself on the back of a horse.
Nilolai Gogol – Steeds, steeds, what steeds! Has the whirlwind a home in your manes?
Ian Fleming – A horse is dangerous at both ends and uncomfortable in the middle.
Helen Thomson – In riding a horse, we borrow freedom.
Beryl Markham – A lovely horse is always an experience. It is an emotional experience of the kind that is spoiled by words.
Josephine Demott Robinson – Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.
Winston Churchill – No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.
Of all of these quotes by one absolutely favorite is the line written in Shakespear’s play “Richard III” – A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse. Alas poor little me. I have no kingdom therefore I have no horse.
In these two pictures with me and the horse in one I explain to the horse that he must look at the camera. In the second he has understood and we both get our picture taken.
