Oh wasn't it naughty of Smudges?
Oh Mummy, I'm sick with disgust.
She threw me in front of the judges,
And my silly old collar-bone's bust.
John Betjeman

It takes a good deal of physical courage to ride a horse. This, however, I have. I get it at about forty cents a flask, and take it as required.
Stephen Leacock

With flowing tail and flying mane,
Wide nostrils, never stretched by pain,
Mouth bloodless to bit or rein,
And feet that iron never shod,
And flanks unscar'd by spur or rod
A thousand horses - the wild - the free -
Like waves that follow o'er the sea,
Came thickly thundering on.
Lord Byron

Feeling down? Saddle up.
Author Unknown

I'd ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross
For giblet gravy and cranberry sauce,
Two treats which are held in reserve by the waiter
Till you've finished your turkey and mashed potater.
Ogden Nash

Even an E-type Jaguar looks merely flash beside a really smart pony and trap.
Marion C. Garretty

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

Four things greater than all things are, -
Women and Horses and Power and War.
Rudyard Kipling
The Ballad of the King's Jest.

For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.
Nursery Rhyme

A horse which stops dead just before a jump and thus propels its rider into a graceful arc provides a splendid excuse for general merriment.
Duke of Edinburgh

Again the early-morning sun was generous with its warmth. All the sounds dear to a horseman were around me - the snort of the horses as they cleared their throats, the gentle swish of their tails, the tinkle of irons as we flung the saddles over their backs - little sounds of no importance, but they stay in the unconscious library of memory.
Wynford Vaughan-Thomas

Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady upon a white horse;
With rings on her fingers,
And bells on her toes,
She shall have music,
Wherever she goes.
Nursery Rhyme

They say princes learn no art truly but the art of horsemanship. The reason is the brave beast is no flatterer. He will throw a prince as soon as his groom.
Ben Jonson
Discoveries Made Upon Men and Matter and Some Poems, Illiteratus princeps.

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name,
It felt good to be out of the rain.
In the desert you can remember your name,
'Cause there's ain't no one for to give you no pain.
Dewey Bunnell
From song, A Horse With No Name.

I bless the hoss from hoof to head -
From head to hoof, and tale to mane! -
I bless the hoss, as I have said,
From head to hoof, and back again!
James Whitcomb Riley

Small children are convinced that ponies deserve to see the inside of the house.
Maya Patel

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

Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
Friendship without envy,
Or beauty without vanity?
Here, where grace is served with muscle
And strength by gentleness confined
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.
There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.
Ronald Duncan
The Horse, 1954.

One reason why birds and horses are happy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses.
Dale Carnegie

The horse through all its trials has preserved the sweetness of paradise in its blood.
Johannes Jensen

Horses lend us the wings we lack.
Author Unknown

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

I go about looking at horses and cattle. They eat grass, make love, work when they have to, bear their young. I am sick with envy of them.
Sherwood Anderson

Somewhere in time's own space
There must be some sweet pastured place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow
Some paradise where horses go,
For by the love that guides my pen
I know great horses live again.
Stanley Harrison

People have always cared me a bit, you see - they're so complicated. I suppose that's why I prefer horses.
From movie, Separate Tables, 1958.

There are unknown worlds of knowledge in brutes; and whenever you mark a horse, or a dog, with a peculiarly mild, calm, deep-seated eye, be sure he is an Aristotle or a Kant, tranquilly speculating upon the mysteries in man. No philosophers so thoroughly comprehend us as dogs and horses. They see through us at a glance. And after all, what is a horse but a species of four-footed dumb man, in a leathern overall, who happens to live upon oats, and toils for his masters, half-requited or abused, like the biped hewers of wood and drawers of water? But there is a touch of divinity even in brutes, and a special halo about a horse, that should forever exempt him from indignities. As for those majestic, magisterial truck-horses of the docks, I would as soon think of striking a judge on the bench, as to lay violent hand upon their holy hides.
Herman Melville
Redburn. His First Voyage, 1849.

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

If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question, or asked the question wrong.
Pat Parelli

Gipsy gold does not chink and glitter. It gleams in the sun and neighs in the dark.
Claddaugh Gypsies of Galway
Attributed.

I prefer a bike to a horse. The brakes are more easily checked.
Lambert Jeffries

What delight
To back the flying steed, that challenges
The wind for speed! - seems native more of air
Than earth! - whose burden only lends him fire! -
Whose soul, in his task, turns labour into sport;
Who makes your pastime his! I sit him now!
He takes away my breath! He makes me reel!
I touch not earth - I see not - hear not. All
Is ecstasy of motion!
James Sheridan Knowles
The Love-Chase.

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

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.
Author Unknown

The hooves of horses!
Oh! witching and sweet
Is the music earth steals from the iron-shod feet;
No whisper of lover, no trilling of bird,
Can stir me as much as hooves of horses
Have stirred.
Will H. Ogilvie
