My herd of favorite horse lover’s quotes

Daily Oats: Food for the horse lover’s soul

This is a collection of quotes that I have used on the Knot-A-Tail Facebook page. Most of them are mine, but a few others have joined the herd as well. I hope you enjoy them.

Within the warmth of my horse’s breath, I will find the air that I need to live today, I will find the wind to fly to the heights of my dreams, I will find the one I am meant to be.

As I gather my horse’s mane and get ready to ride, we become one. It is only within that power and love beneath me, that I dream my greatest dreams.

There is nothing that makes its’ way more directly into my soul than beauty of a horse and the love from their heart.

Today’s words are  tomorrow rides,  so chose wisely or you  may find yourself face first in the dirt.

I am thankful for this day of life, for eyes to see the sky, for ears to hear the birds, for feet to walk amidst the trees, for hands to pick the flowers from the earth, for a sense of smell to breathe in the sweet perfumes of nature to appreciate the magic of everyday miracles within the love of all my  four legged friends.

Horseman don’t ever buy a horse expecting it to be your last one.

Worrying is like riding an ass, you use most of your energy up but you never get anywhere.

Do you ever wonder, when you are out by the barn, how such a little bird can make such a beautiful song, like it they were singing just in the joy of seeing you? Whenever, I am around my horses, I feel like a tiny bird with a big song with the love from such a pure heart.

Who ever said “I would not know what to do with a million dollars” never owned a horse.

Hold on to what is good, even if it’s a handful of earth. Hold on to what you believe, even if it’s a tree that stands by itself. Hold on to what you must do, even if it’s along way from here. Hold on to your faith, even if it’s easier to let go and above all else hug the heck our of your horse.

Surgeons General Warning: Horses are expensive, addictive, and may impair the ability to use common sense.

Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best. When I head for the barn in the morning, I always feel like a tiny bird with a BIG song in my heart. I also pretend the world will hear me with  smiles, love and laughter.

Dear Lord, may I never be too old to stop smiling when I hear a whiny, my foot in the stirrup, the warmth of my saddle, the feel of the reins in my hands and my head laying against the warmth of my horses’ heart.

It only takes one idea, one second in time, one friend, one dream, one leap of faith, one kind thought to a friend, or even perhaps only one more ride  to take you to all your dreams and change everything,  forever.

I am a Cowgirl, and I can fly without wings. I just climb on my favorite stead, and close my eyes. I know he will take me to places I have never been. I may not have been to Congress or to World but I know that,  it is within my horse’s heart guided by the eyes of the lord that this is greatest love there has ever been.

“Cowgirl up” is an expression that means to rise to the occasion, not to give up, and to do it all without whining or complaining. It is easy to say Cowgirl-up, it is the champions of their horse’s heart  that live up to it.  A cowgirl is the  champion of her life.

Being A horse-A-holic might be the only time that it is perfect to be in the middle of a life long addiction.

Dear Lord, How can I every thank you for lending me the love of a horse that brings such happiness, and lite to my very soul for within their love, you have created my own heart.

Remember, a Cowgirl’s heart always has a heart full of hope and a life full of laughter.
Be the whinny Just because it feels so damn good!

  1. Thank for sharing!!

  2. Thanks as always Roberta for sharing your great love and inspiration with all of us! Hope your day is fabulous!

  3. Dear Roberta,

    I am so filled with gratitude for you! Your eloquent words allow my heart to open up to the beauty of who I am. At the young age of 56, I am finally living my dream of being connected with horses. And in a much bigger and better way than I ever thought possible, because what I do allows others to experience the magic also. Providing equine assisted activities and therapies for persons with disabilities, I am priviledged to see how truly magnificent the human/horse connection is.
    Thank you for your willlingness to share your connection with all of us!
    With love,

  4. Here is my favorite poem and I don’t know who wrote it …

    When horses accepted the burden,
    Of traveling narrow human paths,
    And took the royal oath to serve;

    The angels whispered low together,
    Let man learn from their charity,
    Their courage, kindness and loyalty;

    For the the language of horses,
    Is known the world wide over,
    As this is one of God’s noblest creatures.

    Happy trails,
    The Divine Cowgirl

    • This is a wonderful site to recieve much needed insperation in todays economy of doom and gloom. This site has lifted my heart today. I will come here often.

  5. This not only made me smile but my husband as well. He has been laid off and was really grumpy until I read this to him. Thanks so much for making us smile. Horses are our life, even though we are much older than most. One of our best things to do is put our arms around them and feel the warmth and love they give us. Even our rescue horse will finally let us do it. He know now he is loved and will get his food. Bright Blessings to all.
    One cowgirl who never grew out of horse even though many told me I would.

  10. I just lost my best friend and buddy from colic a few days ago, and reading your quotes have been a blessing, along with a few tears, but I will always remember my big, beautiful Diablo. …… Your quotes are very inspiring and true! Thank you!

    • I am so glad that you enjoy the horse quotes and that they inspired your heart. I want to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. Just to let you know, both you and your Diablo will be in my thoughts today. Love Roberta

  11. I’ve been combing the web this morning for horse lover blogs, and just wanted to let anyone who might be a horse lover AND a book lover know I have a new release out with Steeple Hill publishers (a division of Harlequin) called RODEO SWEETHEART. I’d love for some new readers outside of my typical readership to check out the novel and review it from a horse lover perspective! The book is available on Amazon or CBD or Barnes & Noble and might even be in your local stores. It’s about a young woman who, in order to save her beloved ranch, must ride in the same rodeo that killed her father…

    Nice blog and thanks for letting me crash it. =)

  12. I love horses

  13. I loved your horse quotes, they are awesome. What a great way to express the love of the horse!
