” We have almost forgotten how strange a thing is that so huge and powerful and intelligent an animal as a horse should allow another, and far more feeble animal, to ride upon its back.”

– Peter Gray

” I can make a General in five minutes but a good horse is hard to replace.”

– Abraham Lincoln

“I have seen things so beautiful they have brought tears to my eyes.
Yet none of them can match the gracefulness and beauty of a horse running free.”
