And Allah took a handful of southerly wind, blew
His breath over it, and created the horse.... Thou shall fly
without wings, and conquer without any sword. Oh, horse. Bedouin Legend
Horses - if God made anything more beautiful, he kept it for
himself. Author Unknown
He's of the colour of the nutmeg. And of the heat of the ginger....
he is pure air and fire; and the dull elements of earth and
water never appear in him, but only in patient stillness while
his rider mounts him; he is indeed a horse, and all other jades
you may call beasts. William Shakespeare Henry V.
Men are generally more careful of the Breed of their Horses
and Dogs than of their Children. William Penn Fruits of Solitude.
A dog may be man's best friend, but the horse wrote history. Author Unknown
Why did this animal that had prospered so in the Colorado desert
leave his amiable homeland for Siberia? There is no answer.
We know that when the horse negotiated the land bridge... he
found on the other end an opportunity for varied development
that is one of the bright aspects of animal history. He wandered
into France and became the mighty Percheron, and into Arabia,
where he developed into a lovely poem of a horse, and into Africa
where he became the brilliant zebra, and into Scotland, where
he bred selectively to form the massive Clydesdale. He would
also journey into Spain, where his very name would become the
designation for gentleman, a caballero, a man of the horse.
There he would flourish mightily and serve the armies that would
conquer much of the known world. James Michener
A horse is poetry in motion. Author Unknown
A Horseman should know neither fear, nor anger. James Rarey
Horse sense, n.: Stable thinking. Author Unknown
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. Edward Plantagenet Attributed.
Brahma was excessively sparing with earth, water, and fire....
The reckless expenditure of air and ether in his composition
was amazing. And, in consequence, he perpetually struggled to
outreach the wind, to outrun space itself. Other animals ran
only when they had a reason, but the Horse would run for no
reason whatever, as if to run out of his own skin. Rabindranath Tagore
Look back at our struggle for freedom,
Trace our present day's strength to it's source;
And you'll find that man's pathway to glory
Is strewn with the bones of the horse. Author Unknown
