We love dogs, cats, horses, other animals. They are precious. Some don’t understand horses.
I hope these quotes from WeForAnimals.com, some with no attribution, help you start to see their true nature and how people regard them. I and others can tell you these things are true.
“A dog looks up to a man, a cat looks down on a man, but a patient horse looks a man in the eye and sees him as an equal.”
“A horse doesn’t care how much you know until he knows how much you care.” — Pat Parelli
“Bread may feed my body, but my horse feeds my soul. “
“Give a horse what he needs and he will give you his heart in return.”
“Horseback riding is life, the rest is just details.”
“Horses can’t talk, but they can speak if you listen.”
“Horses give us the wings we lack.”
“I have often been asked why do I like horses so much. Look into one’s eyes. There you will see generations of horses who have served the humans for thousands of years faithfully for nothing in return. Beaten horses, starved hoses, horses who no longer possess a spirit. They deserve to be loved and respected as much as humanly possible. Let them run free again. Let them no longer be a faithful beasts, but embrace them as you would a dear friend, for that is what they are.”
“I have seen things so beautiful, that they have brought tears to my eyes. Yet, none of them can match the gracefulness and beauty of a horse running free.”
“Nothing is more sacred as the bond between a horse and a rider. No other creature can ever become so emotionally close to a human as a horse. When a horse dies, the memory lives on, because an enormous part of his owner’s heart, soul, and the very existence dies also.” – Stephanie M Thorn
“Nothing moves me more – when on the way to fetching in my mare in the morning – than the sound of her neighing to me as I open the gate.”
“Riding isn’t the matter of life or death. It’s more important than that.”
‘To understand the soul of a horse is the closest we humans can come to knowing perfection.”
“When your horse follows you without being asked, when he rubs his head on yours, and when you look at him and feel a tingle down your spine you, know you are loved. Do you love him back?”
