“The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us
into the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and fire.”
Sharon Ralls Lemon
“A man on a horse is spiritually as well as physically
bigger than a man on foot.”
“If heaven don’t have horses, I ain’t goin’.”
“I grew up in New Mexico, and the older I get, I have less need for contemporary culture, big cities, and all the stuff we are bombarded with. I am happier at my ranch in the middle of nowhere, listening to silence, riding my horse, and being in open space.”
“That’s why God gave us horses. He wanted us to see how their beauty, courage, and especially forgiveness, is a reflection of Himself. Remember that God loved you enough to give you the horse, and He loves the horse enough to give you insight into how to treat and care for him.”
What other creature but a horse could carry and be completely in step with a human? What other creature but a human could be as wild and tame as a horse? Maybe the connection we have with one another is meant to be. To help us re-connect with ourselves, our origins, our earth, our hearts, and our souls.
Maybe we’d all have our feet more firmly on the ground if we lived like The Equestrians.
