. . . . Never kiss your horse on the nose right after putting Carmex on your lips. Also, don't shave your horse, or curry your horse right after putting Carmex on your lips.
. . . . whoever said you have nothing to fear but fear itself has never been on a horse on the trail in gale force winds.
. . . . everything is new and scary when you change direction in the arena.
. . . . never tell your spouse you have all the equipment you need, because that is just a challenge to the Universe to prove you wrong.
. . . . don't brag to everyone about how wonderful your saddle is, because then it won't fit your horse any more.
. . . . nothing is so bad that a flapping tarp can't make worse.
. . . . horses are the only creature on the planet that can actually go in five directions at once.
. . . . horses can sniff out treats at 500 feet.
. . . . an abrupt stop is not a dressage move
. . . . neither is a vertical spook.
. . . . horses know instinctively how to play the "you can't catch me" game.
. . . . gravity works, can be incredibly painful, sometimes hilarious and always a risk
. . . . humans are not squeeky toys and should not be treated as such.
. . . . horse hair has amazing qualities and can remain in unspeakable areas even after a hot shower.
. . . . garbage cans are not predators
