10 Quotes Straight from the Horse’s Mouth

Or, perhaps straight from the mouths of humans about horses. Either way, you get the idea. Not to be outdone by our 10 Great Cat Quotes and 10 Favorite Dog Quotes blogs from last week, some of my horses have protested, demanding fair and equal treatment compared to their shorter friends. So I’ve found some great horse quotes, that are all Mr. Ed approved!

― Helen Thompson

“Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people. ”

America was built on the backs of horses – they were integration our history from transportation to building the railroad, in war, and in peace. They can be found in sports, recreation, in working situations, and for some of us, even in our own backyards.


AHSC also does farm calls to help keep the horses in your life safe, happy, and sound. While we’re heading into winter, now’s a good time to booster for flu/rhino, two common diseases that affect horses much like how us humans are more prone to the flu and colds this time of year. If you haven’t boostered your horse yet, contact us to schedule an appointment.

Sussex County and the surrounding area is beautiful horse country, where you can enjoy everything from hunter paces and fox hunting with Windy Hollow Hunt, to shows, trail riding, and even Grand Prix events and the Sussex County Fair Grounds. But to go to these events, your horse has to be current on their shots and noggins, so be sure to be prepared!
