Some of our favorite quotes....
"I pray that gentle hands may guide my feet. I ask for kind commands from voices sweet. At night a stable warm with scented hay, where, safe from every harm, I'll sleep till day." -Anonymous
"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
"Riding is a partnership. The horse lends you his strength, speed and grace, which are greater than yours. For your part you give him your guidance, intelligence and understanding, which are greater than his. Together you can achieve a richness that alone neither can" -Lucy Rees
"To learn all that a horse could teach, was a world of knowledge, but only a beginning. Look into a horses eye and you instantly know if you can trust him."
- Mary O'Hara
