& the entire
(All horse lovers will understand the following)
1.People who don't take care of
their own horses will be the first ones to tell
you how to care for yours.
2.You should never buy a cheap girth!
3.A handsome horse who's badly behaved will become
a lot less attractive in about 15 minutes.
4.People who think they have nothing more to learn
about riding hit the ground the hardest.
5.Children and ponies are natural allies and often
have identical dispositions.
6.The richest horse people often look the poorest.
7.The closeness of a horse is one of the sweetest
smells in the world.
8.A solitary ride through the bush is more beneficial
than six months with the best psychiatrist.
9.The worse a person rides the more likely they
are going to blame it on the horse.
10.The best thing about going to the barn first
thing in the morning is that horses don't care
how you look.
11.If a dealer insists a horse is worth twice
what he's asking, he is probably worth half that
12.The best way to appreciate how another person
rides is to get on their horse.
13.I can recognise another horse person no matter
what town, city, state, county or country I visit.
14.You can never have too many hoof picks.
15.It is not wise to argue with something that
outweighs you by 1,000 pounds
16.I'd rather have a horse with a perfect mind
than a perfect head.
17.Some folks believe that eight hours is too
long to be in the saddle!
18.If you think you have left the water on in
the barn you have; if you think you closed the
pasture gate, you didn't.
19.When someone asks you if you like their horse,
always say yes!
20.The happiest people I know own horses, dogs,
cats and at least one deranged goat.
21.If you're looking for the perfect horse you
will never own one.
22.Owning a horse can either make a marriage or
23.I'd rather lose my lipstick than my curb chain.
24.You shouldn't talk about your first place ribbon
to someone that came in second.
25.If someone says that a horse has a little buck,
believe me, it has a BIG BUCK.
26.If we need rain, schedule a horse show.
27.I've never warmed up to someone that didn't
care to visit my stables and meet the horses.
28.A clean barn and a sparkling horse are among
life's great pleasures.
29.Giving away horses can be expensive, specially
30.No matter how badly behaved you are, your horse
always gives you a second chance.
31.A more expensive horse doesn't make a better
32.An empty stable is not a "good thing".
33.Losing a horse can break your heart, but it
will have been worth it.
"If you can't imagine
life without a horse... DON'T!"
Brenda Cross (Florida)
• Be aware of the effect your actions have
on others, their horses and their property.
• Do not upset your co-rider's horses.
• Ride at a quiet, controlled pace.
• NEVER PASS OTHERS AT A GALLOP.
• Keep a safe distance...don't crowd others.
If your horse has a history of kicking, tie something
RED on the horse tail.........so others will be
Note to Bucksnort: ESPECIALLY going UP and DOWN
hills...keep a good safe distance in case the
horse in front of you decides to change directions!
• STAY WITH A DISMOUNTED RIDER. If you are
going to lag very far behind tell others , so
they may be aware of where you are. Staying together,
riding in groups, helps us all ride safely and,
if help is needed, others are there
• Respect the property of others. (ie: lawns,
farm fields, crops, groves, livestock, etc.)
• Leave gates as you found them: Open gates
should remain open. Closed gates should remain
REMEMBER! If you mind your manners others won't
mind when you and your horse return to ride.
