"A horse is poetry in motion" - Hunting with Hounds.............

“There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.”
- Sir Winston Churchill

A lovely horse is always an experience.... It is an emotional experience of the kind that is spoiled by words.
~Beryl Markham
Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
Friendship without envy,
Or beauty without vanity?
Here, where grace is served with muscle
And strength by gentleness confined
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.
There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.
All our history is in his industry.
We are his heirs, he our inheritance.
~Ronald Duncan, "The Horse," 1954

“Very few people have settled entirely in the country but have grown at length weary of one another . . . the gentleman falls in love with his dogs and horses and out of love with everything else.” - Lady Montagu
No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.
~Winston Churchill
Hunting is our music,
It is our Poetry,
It is our Art,
It is our Pleasure
- Baroness Mallalieu

  1. I have a fear for horses but I'd like to look at them because they are such elegant creatures.
