“We will never have to tell our horse that we are sad, happy, confident, angry, or relaxed. He already knows long before we do.” – Marji
“No matter how big or small you are, your horse is always there for you when you need your spirit lifted.”
On a horse, a person who can’t walk has the legs to run. Someone who is isolated from others has a friend to trust.
“A horse is the projection of peoples’ dreams about themselves – strong, powerful, beautiful – and it has the capability of giving us escape.
“The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and freedom.”
“Bread may feed my body, but my horse feeds my soul.”
“I am still under the impression that there is nothing alive quite so beautiful as a horse.
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 magical music.
A horse doesn’t care how much you know until he knows how much you care.
“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.”
