"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby,
to be picked up and laid down
like a game of Solitaire.
It is a grand passion"

---Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • Sorry, don't know the speakers, but they're from the Quotable Horseman book...

    "Riding is the art of keeping a horse between you and the ground."

    "I ride so I can exercise while sitting down."
  • "There's something about the outside of a horse that's good for the inside of a man."

    (don't mean to exclude the females, that's just how the quote goes)

      Absolute all time favorite:
      "And God took a handful of southerly wind, blew His breath over it, and created the horse"

      -- Bedouin Legend

        "When we listen to our horses, we get an education.
        When we don't, we get experience."

      Now I'm never gonna get any work done! That's an awesome site. Thanks for sharing!
      • Regarding the quote " I help horses with people problems" is a direct quote from Tom Dorrance, who was a major influence on the horse whisperer movie, tho he didn'care for the end result which became the book, he was interviewed by the author...I mety Tom over twenty years ago and spent some time with him, and he was a major influence ...more of his quotes are in his book " True Unity"
        • When they asked Buck Brannamen, who advised on "The Horse Whisperer," if he was the actual horse whisper, he said, "I'm not, and if you meet anyone who says he is, you better hold onto your wallet with both hands."

            Interesting...Buck Brannaman's 2006 paperback edition of "Believe" features a cover quote from Nicholas Evans stating "The one who truly inspired me was Buck Brannaman".

            ...my grasp on my wallet was perhaps not as firm as I'd hoped!
