Riding: The art of keeping a horse between you and the ground.
Author Unknown

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.
Mexican Proverb

As he was drifting to sleep his thoughts were of horses and of the open country and of horses. Horses still wild on the mesa who'd never seen a man afoot and who knew nothing of him or his life yet in whose souls he would come to reside forever.
Cormac McCarthy
All the Pretty Horses.

The wagon rests in winter, the sleigh in summer, the horse never.
Yiddish Proverb

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

No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.
Winston Churchill

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

Josephine Demott Robinson

It's always been and always will be the same in the world: The horse does the work and the coachman is tipped.

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

Ah, steeds, steeds, what steeds! Has the whirlwind a home in your manes? Is there a sensitive ear, alert as a flame, in your every fiber? Hearing the familiar song from above, all in one accord you strain your bronze chests and, hooves barely touching the ground, turn into straight lines cleaving the air, and all inspired by God it rushes on!
Nikolai V. Gogol
Dead Souls, 1842.

To ride a horse is to ride the sky.
Author Unknown

There is no secret so close as that between a rider and his horse.
Robert Smith Surtees
Chapter XXX: Bolting the Badger, Mr. Sponge's Sporting Tour, 1853.

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

Wherever man has left his footprint in the long ascent from barbarism to civilization we will find the hoofprint of the horse beside it.
John Moore

A horse is dangerous at both ends and uncomfortable in the middle.
Ian Fleming

It's a lot like nuts and bolts - if the rider's nuts, the horse bolts!
Nicholas Evans

A lovely horse is always an experience.... It is an emotional experience of the kind that is spoiled by words.
Beryl Markham

I can always tell which is the front end of a horse, but beyond that, my art is not above the ordinary.
Mark Twain

I heard a neigh. Oh, such a brisk and melodious neigh as that was! My very heart leaped with delight at the sound.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
The Chimaera, A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys.

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

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

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 Hibernian sage once wrote that there are three things a man never forgets: The girl of his early youth, a devoted teacher, and a great horse.
C.J.J. Mullen

A canter is a cure for every evil.
Benjamin Disraeli

If the world was truly a rational place, men would ride sidesaddle.
Rita Mae Brown

A man on a horse is spiritually as well as physically bigger than a man on foot.
John Steinbeck

Among all the sights of the docks, the noble truck-horses are not the least striking to a stranger. They are large and powerful brutes, with such sleek and glossy coats, that they look as if brushed and put on by a valet every morning. They march with a slow and stately step, lifting their ponderous hoofs like royal Siam elephants. Thou shalt not lay stripes upon these Roman citizens; for their docility is such, they are guided without rein or lash; they go or come, halt or march on, at a whisper. So grave, dignified, gentlemanly, and courteous did these fine truck-horses look - so full of calm intelligence and sagacity, that often I endeavored to get into conversation with them, as they stood in contemplative attitudes while their loads were preparing. But all I could get from them was the mere recognition of a friendly neigh; though I would stake much upon it that, could I have spoken in their language, I would have derived from them a good deal of valuable information touching the docks, where they passed the whole of their dignified lives.
Herman Melville
Redburn: His First Voyage.

A horse is worth more than riches.
Spanish Proverb

When you're young and you fall off a horse, you may break something. When you're my age, you splatter.
Roy Rogers

The ass will carry his load, but not a double load; ride not a free horse to death.
Miguel de Cervantes
Don Quixote.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
