The horse life is a life of the highest highs and lowest lows; you never know which is coming next, and horses have a way of spoiling even the most carefully laid plans. Why do we love them again? Oh, right, the beauty. Many reasons horses are the best and ………….

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

…for there is no other feeling in the world to compare with it if one loves a great horse. It gives a thrill that nothing else ever can. It cannot be put into words, because words cannot express it.”  – Samuel Riddle

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

Another sonnet  to horses and their special spiritual nature, this quote says what people  on horse are always thinking — we are stronger when we’re sitting upon their backs.

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” –  Anatole France

“Somewhere…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

 “For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with the extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings: they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.” –  Henry Beston
