Hi everyone, I have a new book out that teaches kids the basics of riding. It is called The Little Red Riding Book and it is a fictional story with lots of educational information. I'm not one for sales pitches, but of you'd like to check it out the website is www.redridingbook.com and it is available through Trafalgar Square (horseandriderbooks.com). Thanks!

A horse can lend its rider the speed and strength he or she lacks, but the rider who is wise remembers it is no more than a loan...

This was a real quote I heard from a love lorn Texan!!!!

"All I ever wanted was a blaze-faced sorrel and a brown eyed gal"


Sadly my eyes are green and we call them chestnut where I am from!!!

One of the most famous but also one of the best.................in full

"When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk; he trots the air, the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes"

Henry V - William Shakespeare

To Tell The Age of a Horse

To tell the age of any horse
Inspect the lower jaw of course
The six front teth the tale will tell
And every doubt and fear dispel

Two middle nippers you behold
Before the foal is eight days old
Before eight weeks two more will come
Eight months the corners cut the gum

The outside enamel will disappear
From the middle two in just one year
Also one year for the second pair
In two years corners too will wear

At two and a half the middle nippers drop
At three and a half the second pair can't stop
When four and a half the third pair goes
At five a new worn set he shows

The deep black spots will pass from view
At six years from the middle two
The second pair at seven years
At eight he spot each corner clears

From middle nippers upper jaw
At nine the black spots will withdraw
The second pair at ten are bright
Eleven finds the corners light

As time goes on the horsemen know
The oval teeth three-sided grow
They longer get, project before
Till twenty, when we know no more

There is no secret so close as that between a horse and his rider

This says so much - in just a few words it encompasses, perhaps, a lifetime together.

A Smooth Little Horse Colt Should Move a Man as Much as does a Son.

There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man. ~Winston Churchill

Again the early-morning sun was generous with its warmth. All the sounds dear to a horseman were around me - the snort of the horses as they cleared their throats, the gentle swish of their tails, the tinkle of irons as we flung the saddles over their backs - little sounds of no importance, but they stay in the unconscious library of memory. ~Wynford Vaughan-Thomas
