Polo is a great thing to do with your kids and your family – it is a great day out. And to me, horses are amazing creatures that give you this cable to Earth and put you in contact with nature. -Nacho Figueras

My real passions are horses and playing polo. I care a lot about that and staying fit and in shape. -Nacho Figueras

I was born in Argentina where polo is popular, and my father always loved horses, so he encouraged me to play. He's the main reason I started to play polo and get involved with the sport. -Nacho Figueras

I always say that polo, for you to pursue a career, mainly any sport, you have to be born in the right place. If you're born in Hawaii, you surf. If you're born in Austria, you probably will ski. If you're born in Argentina, you most likely ride horses and have a chance to play polo. -Nacho Figueras

When I was a little boy, I rode, but I didn't own horses. -Viggo Mortensen

For 'Hidalgo,' I just spent as much time around horses as I could, which made sense. -Viggo Mortensen

My aim and my passion is to own and breed race horses. -Kylie Bax

You know, Darwin said through natural selection things go gradually, and he was talking about pigeon's evolution or horses evolving, getting faster. But in fact if you look at evolution on a bigger scale, cosmic evolution and you look at culture evolution you see it jumps, it goes through phase changes, and that's very exciting. -Charles Jencks

I've got to be able to get my time off whether it's just enjoying my house or the peace and quiet of my family and being there and cooking for them. I love doing that. I also love doing leisure things. I ride horses. I love to shop. I love to drive! -LisaRaye McCoy-Misick

I was a daredevil before, and after I lost my sight I was the same. I loved riding bikes, scooters and horses. I even learned to box. Muhammad Ali is my hero. -Andrea Bocelli

I like to windsurf and ski, and most of all I love to ride horses. The wilder and faster the better! If I'm presented with a fast horse or a fast boat, I still get that shiver of excitement and I cannot resist. Luckily I never seem to have any accidents, and thank God for that. -Andrea Bocelli

I play golf with my shirttail out. I own a golf course because it's very, very close to my house, and I don't want to drive 45 minutes to the north side of Oklahoma City to play golf every day. I have race horses 'cause I love horses and it's my hobby. -Toby Keith

When my kids were toddlers, they had all these rotomolded plastic things. My life became surrounded by big, hollow plastic toys – from the scale of playhouses down to rocking horses, and everything in between – which we would then take to the secondhand store. But we'd get sentimentally attached and hate to see them go. -Greg Lynn

I encourage people who don't believe in evolution to look for horses in Jurassic Solenhofen limestone. -Jack Horner

I think Irish women are strong as horses, incredibly loyal and for the most part, funny, witty, bright and optimistic in the face of devastating reality. -Fionnula Flanagan

Other families bought automobiles; we had a horse-headed hitching post in front of our house and drove horses. -Paul Engle

My favorite movie out of the old movies was 'Escape to Witch Mountain.' We were working with horses and bears, and when you have a great friend like Ike and a great director… it was a great experience. -Kim Richards

I rode horses since I was a kid. -Zach Roerig

I'm used to riding horses. My father used to breed horses when I was a child. I grew up in Tipperary, in the country, and lots of people have horses there. If my parents hadn't been in the business, we would have them anyway, as pets. And my cousin Richard is a jockey. -Kerry Condon

I played tennis and softball, and we had horses, growing up. -Beth Riesgraf

I can't always be making 'British films.' Why should we be making films about corsets and horses and girls learning to drive when Americans send over an event movie and make five or 10 million? -Noel Clarke

I have way too many hobbies. I play guitar, and my buddies and I record music in a studio in my house. I have a couple of vintage Jeeps I'm always working on, fixing up. And I ride horses – I grew up on a horse ranch – and play basketball. I need to cut back on my hobbies so I can work more. -Riley Smith

If I were to leave the U.S., I'd live in England. But I'd never leave the U.S. I own a 400-acre farm in Macon, Georgia. I raise cattle and hogs. I own horses, too. I love horses as much as singing. I like to hunt on horseback. -Otis Redding

There's so many things I'm dying to do. I wanna do a movie with horses. -Bethany Joy Lenz

I used to ride horses when I was younger. Ponies were my life. I miss being fearless. -Talulah Riley

I try to find some time for my horses. I began when I was a child, because I was born and grew up in a little village. And many people ride the horses. So, it was a big – it has been a big passion for me. -Andrea Bocelli

When the mood takes me, I like to be a man of action. I like to windsurf and ski, and most of all I love to ride horses. The wilder and faster the better! -Andrea Bocelli

I loved riding bikes and horses. I was eight when I started having lessons, and when my father bought me my own horse I couldn't wait to go off on my own. -Andrea Bocelli

I didn't grow up around wild horses, no. But I've appreciated their beauty and their power ever since I can remember. -Ricky Schroder

Making a movie where the central character is a horse was a challenge. Because I'm scared of riding. I was thrown as a kid. One of my daughters is a competitive jumper, we live with horses, we have stables on our property. But I don't ride. I observe, and I worry. -Steven Spielberg

I didn't just grow up with horses; I wanted to be one. -Clare Balding

The British have a unique relationship with horses. They are etched into our landscape in chalk, they have been written about, painted, sung about, celebrated and gambled upon for centuries. -Clare Balding

My house borders horse farms, and I can look out my window and see the horses and the new colts. It's really peaceful. -Queen Latifah

Horseracing and ranch horses are two different animals. You're getting race horses out and running and running them. It can be really problematic. A thoroughbred's very delicate. -Dennis Quaid

In 'We Were the Mulvaneys,' animals are almost as important as people. I wanted to show the tenderness in our relationships with cats, dogs, and horses. Especially cats. -Joyce Carol Oates

Every unwanted animal ends up on my farm: alpacas and horses and dogs and cats and chickens and ducks and parrots and fish and guinea pigs. -Salma Hayek

When you get to the point where you're established enough that people link you with something, especially being an action hero babe, it's awesome. Because then you can fight the battles and have the crossbows and wrestle with swords and ride the horses because you're already believable; people see you in that genre. -Rachel Nichols

My mom grew up with horses, and when I turned 14, 15, she's like, 'Do you want to take a riding lesson?' I thought, 'Oh, gross, dirty.' She was like, 'Okay.' And then I did, and now I'm the one cleaning those damn stalls out. You can't get me away from the barn now. It shocks even me. -Kaley Cuoco

I have a Chamberlain I bought from some surfers in Westwood many years ago. It's an early analog synthesizer; it operates on tape loops. It has 60 voices – everything from galloping horses to owls to rain to every instrument in the orchestra. -Tom Waits

Roads, better harnesses for horses, time-keeping devices, financial instruments like a currency that was recognized everywhere in the kingdom, enforceable contracts – all of this made commerce more appealing than plunder. -Steven Pinker

My father was an insurance man and a small-time gambler. He was a good man, but he had an eye for the racehorses, and I saw how it used to bother my mother. I've never gambled a dime. Never, in all those years in Vegas. -Don Rickles

I love horses. There's something practical and mystical about them. -William Shatner

I wouldn't mind doing a film revolving around horses, but I wouldn't dilute my equity just sitting on one. -Randeep Hooda

A few years ago, when I had no work and started believing that films weren't a viable career, I thought of finding another job. I started training and riding horses and got consumed by that. It was a boon in disguise. -Randeep Hooda

In 2010, I sold my car, a Toyota Majester, for just a lakh-and-a-half to be able to feed my horses. It continues to be like a hole, where I put all my money. -Randeep Hooda

I like folk songs, but ten horses couldn't bring me to a concert or an opera. -Fritz Lang

I grew up in the countryside, and I was obsessed with horses and wildlife. -Bella Freud

The first thing that matters: I am a child of the eighties. I grew up in a neon wonderland of talking horses, compassionate bears, hair that didn't move in a stiff wind, and the constant threat of nuclear war. -Seanan McGuire

My dad was a very quiet person, and unbelievably tough. But my grandmother gave me my first look at negative thinking to bring about positive results. When I was just a little guy, anytime I came to my grandmother and said I wish for this or that, Grandma would say, 'If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.' -Bobby Knight

I confess that as a young boy, Sunday was not my favorite day. Grandfather shut down the action. We didn't have any transportation. We couldn't drive the car. He wouldn't even let us start the motor. We couldn't ride the horses, or the steers, or the sheep. -James E. Faust

It had been my idea that a combination of purebred cattle and horses could be successful from an economic standpoint – in Maryland. Maryland is not a cattle state. To raise beef cattle successfully, you've got to be able to raise cheap feed. -Larry MacPhail

I call horses 'divine mirrors' – they reflect back the emotions you put in. If you put in love and respect and kindness and curiosity, the horse will return that. -Allan Hamilton

I've been on some very good horses which have died, and that's very tough to take. But as much as we love the horses, and care for them, human life is obviously more important. Some good friends of mine have died or been paralysed while doing a job we all love. -Tony McCoy

Really racing is about the horses, not me. You can't do it without the horses, and they are the big players as are the lads who look after them, and they rarely get a mention. -Tony McCoy

I think I've always used the whip in the correct way. I see marked horses every day, and it's not a pretty sight, but I've never marked a horse. Never. -Tony McCoy

Horses are like people – they have different personalities. They can be nice, friendly and hard-working, or awkward, difficult and lazy. If horses were people, some would be on the dole, and others would be entrepreneurs. -Tony McCoy

We are trying to educate players to use their spare time to train for a life after football, which comes to everybody. You can lead a lot of horses to water, but you can't make them all drink. -Gordon Taylor

I've come off horses and fought in medieval battles using axes, hammers and swords as well as fists. Getting your teeth knocked out is an occupational hazard. -James Cosmo

While we women dilly-dally, making decisions, leaving jobs half done, forgetting where we've put the house keys while we water the Hoover and leave the laundry in the dishwasher, men, like blinkered horses, look straight ahead, oblivious to peripheral vision, where a discarded pile of wet towels might have caught their eye. -Mariella Frostrup

I grew up in a home where animals were ever-present and often dominated our lives. There were always horses, dogs, and cats, as well as a revolving infirmary of injured wildlife being nursed by my sister the aspiring vet. -Julia Glass

Charles Darwin and I and you broke off from the family tree from chimpanzees about five million years ago. They're still our closest genetic kin. We share 98.8 percent of the genes. We share more genes with them than zebras do with horses. And we're also their closest cousin. They have more genetic relation to us than to gorillas. -Colin Camerer

I still gamble, but it's all legal. I own horses, and I go to watch my horse. I don't go daily. -Pete Rose

Putin himself is a character out of fiction, an uber-macho former Soviet thug running a massive, expansionist kleptocracy. The man stages photographs riding horses barechested and hunting tigers. His enemies find themselves on the wrong end of radioactive poisoning. -Ben Shapiro

I don't play polo anymore because I am too old. But we still have a half a dozen horses – a couple of young horses we are teaching how to play polo and older horses that are real trustworthy when you get them up in the mountains. -William Devane

The government sends low-flying helicopters to chase the horses into corrals and then takes them from the plains of the American West to federal holding pens.

Critics also say the horses are brutally traumatized. -Jane Velez-Mitchell

I've bought perfectly healthy horses for a couple of hundred dollars just as they were about to be loaded on a slaughterhouse-bound truck. -Jane Velez-Mitchell

If you look at Republicans, they always run these old war horses. -Foster Friess

People ask how hard it can be sitting down for work during a 500-mile race? Well, without power steering or power brakes, holding onto 650 horses in a car that has nearly 3,000 pounds of downforce and can produce up to 4Gs vertically and laterally can be extremely tough – even sitting down. -Charlie Kimball

I ride horses once in a while, but I'm no expert. I hold on for dear life. -Emily Robison

The center of gravity for an organization should be as close to what they make as possible. If you make cars, you need people in the factory. If you breed horses, be in the stable. If you make the Internet, live on the Internet, and use all the freedom and power it gives you. -Matt Mullenweg

I was 3 and a half, and there was an open call for a Coca-Cola commercial. We were living around Dallas, and my mom took me. I think they were calling for 16-year-olds that could ride horses and swing a rope, and for whatever reason, my mom took me up there when I was 3. But I always had a rope, and I was a little cowboy at that age. -Jesse Plemons

I'm used to riding horses. My father used to breed horses when I was a child. I grew up in Tipperary, in the country, and lots of people have horses there. -Kerry Condon

All horses are different – sometimes they have a long neck – so you don't ride the same way on every horse. It depends on their body, and your body, but the object is to get down low so you're aerodynamic, so you call pull from the horse through the head. The best jockeys do that really well, and know how much to push. -Kerry Condon

I want to do a Western so bad because I want to ride horses and act. Those are two of my favorite things in the world to do. I want to do that. -Emily Rose

My great-grandfather, Peter O'Hara, was born in Ireland, I believe, in County Clare. His father, my great-great-grandfather, had actually come to America a generation before when times were very bad in Ireland. He worked in the Pennsylvania area and did well with horses and farming. -Kelli O'Hara

Yakima Canutt was famously John Wayne's stunt double, and in the Western movie 'Stagecoach,' there is a fantastic scene where there are some horses thundering along, pulling a carriage. He climbs out onto the horses and drops down underneath them, so he's being dragged along, and then he lets go. -Steve Truglia

I have four horses, and they are my everything. -Kaley Cuoco

I'm kind of a horse whisperer; I don't know what it is. I'm not great on a horse. I'm getting better, but I'm not brilliant. So yeah, I've spent a lot of time with horses. They're great creatures; I love them. I do love riding them when I get the chance to. -Kit Harington

If there's one thing I could wish for right now, it would be to have one of those horses from the merry-go-round – they were the most exciting thing to go on as a kid. -Deborah Mailman

I grew up with horses and cattle, running around on dirt hills with this real sense of space. We didn't have neighbours – well, the nearest ones were kilometres away. -Deborah Mailman

San Anita is a beautiful track. It's not too far from my house in L.A., and it's a beautiful place to go and watch the horses run. -Kevin Connolly

Now I have an agent, a manager, a lawyer, a publicist, all the king's horses and all the king's men. -Christian McKay

In sixth and seventh grade, my two best friends and I pretended to be horses. Every day after school, we would gallop around, whinnying and stamping our hooves and tossing our manes – for hours. -Tyne Daly

I ride horses, I love horses, I've owned horses. -Pierce Brosnan

My parents believed in exposing each of their children to an abundance of varied activities in the hope they would find something they loved. They each had found a passion – Dad with his music and Mom with her horses – so it was natural for them to encourage experimentation. -Dorothy Hamill

I wouldn't have raced a horse. But you'll then throw back at me that Jesse Owens raced against a horse, and he's one of my heroes, so I'm not going to say it was a silly stunt. I know too much about horses. They're highly unreliable, and they've got brains the size of golf balls. -Sebastian Coe

You know how some people complain about the way carriage horses are treated? That they are in a small stall? That is mistreatment. In a holding cell, you get very bored. You have no newspapers, you have no anything. -Bernhard Goetz

In London, 'Equus' caused a sensation because it displayed cruelty to horses; in New York, because it allegedly displayed cruelty to psychiatrists. -Peter Shaffer

I cut the labels out of my clothes because they scratch. Clothes are just little workhorses, aren't they? -Joanna Lumley

When I took on the title sponsorship of the Western European League and the World Cup Final in October 2010, I did it because I love the sport and I love horses. It has proved to be a perfect match for the Reem Acra brand. -Reem Acra

I think about my dwindling anonymity, and that's really scary because a very large part of me would be perfectly happy living on a ranch in Colorado and having babies and chickens and horses – which I will do anyway. -Dakota Johnson

My first western was 'Death Hunt' with Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin; that was where I learned to ride. The movie was based on a true story about a guy that eluded the Mounties in Canada. We were in Canada for six weeks riding horses. -William Sanderson

Other musicians are basically personalities who want to make a name for themselves. All I do is sing old songs in the best way I can. What else is there to know? If you were a blacksmith, what would people need to know about you other than whether you can make a good horseshoe? -Leon Redbone

I'm scared of horses, and I don't know how to shoot them, but that's what excites me. After 40 years old, if you don't do some things that really terrify you, I don't think they're worth doing. -Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

I thought it might be fun to set my books in Nevada, which is in the West and still pretty Wild. You can still gamble, carry a loaded pistol, and go into a silver-mine, and they still have saloons with swinging doors, boardwalks, and horses. -Caroline Lawrence

I cycle, I take an hour's strenuous walk in the evening, I play tennis twice a week with a trainer, and I sail. I used to ride horses professionally – I'd ride seven or eight horses a day, so I had to be fit for that. -Jonathan Dimbleby

Recently, I had a hip resurfaced. It's different from a hip replacement because it's done with titanium. I like to think that it's the consequence of riding horses so strenuously, but I fear it's much more mundane and was just early-onset arthritis. -Jonathan Dimbleby

Wild horses couldn't drag me away from a summer on the Stockholm archipelago. -Bjorn Ulvaeus

Older boys were allowed to beat younger ones at my 15th-century English boarding school, and every boy had to run a five-mile annual steeplechase through the sludge and rain of an October day, as horses do. We wrote poems in dead languages and recited the Lord's Prayer in Latin every Sunday night. -Pico Iyer

I was one of the horses of the Louis B. Mayer stable, and I thought the films I was given after my Academy Awards were not worthy. -Luise Rainer

I really want to do a Western. I want to be the dude who is riding horses and doing exciting things – something where I get to do something physical and have to train for it. I don't want to be the damsel. -Margot Robbie

In the 1970s, I bought some cheap horses, then decided that if I was going to be in it, I was going to go big time. So in 2001, Bill Casner, a partner with me in Excel, and I bought a breeding farm, WinStar Farm, together. -Kenny Troutt

I say a little prayer every time I see a race. I say a little prayer that the riders and the horses will be okay. -Kenny Troutt

I pretty much always knew I wanted to be a writer. I was writing goofy stories when I was 7 or 8. That was what I call 'wishful-thinking writing.' I grew up in the city and always wanted a horse, but there was no way I was getting a horse. So I wrote all these stories about kids who had horses. It's still fun entering these other worlds. -Ellen Potter

It's because I have no sense of shame that I'm always willing to give things a go: I've ridden horses naked into the sea, I've climbed rocks, all kinds of things. -Abbey Lee Kershaw

I'd like to work with horses, but it doesn't pay very well. Maybe I'd like to go somewhere in the Middle East because they keep buying really nice horses for their Olympic teams – like, the Qataris. -Edie Campbell

I needed to pay for my horses in Warwickshire, and I couldn't do that off a waitress' wage. -Edie Campbell

My favourite smell is horses. In fact, most of the time, I do smell like horses. -Edie Campbell

It's very good for you, riding. You know how every model is like, 'I do yoga.' Well, I find horses to have the same effect, in that you have to put your ego aside and concentrate on making the horse do the things you want it to do, and move in the way you want it to move – particularly if you're doing dressage. -Edie Campbell

Romance readers love a wealthy hero, and why not? There's value in a man able to hire a helicopter, a coach and six horses, or a collection of werewolves to do his bidding – and the bidding of the lucky woman on his arm. -Sarah MacLean

In Kazahkstan, you would drive five hours outside the city to where roads sort of stop being roads, and it was just in the mountains and deathly quiet. And you could only really hear the clumping of the horses, and it was a sort of a beautiful silence. Like it enveloped you. -Benedict Wong

I did this film with Russell Crowe called 'The Water Diviner,' which took place just after WWI. It was fascinating because the weapons between WWI and WII were very different. I had to learn how to ride horses in a battle setting. It was important that we rode a certain way. -Jai Courtney

I suppose 'Gladiator' could be a Western – if you were writing your review in Athens, that is! To be honest, we didn't really think that way at the time. But there is common ground. And they both have horses – I liked that, obviously. -Russell Crowe

Over 55% of all shots using animals in 'The Hobbit' are in fact computer generated; this includes horses, ponies, rabbits, hedgehogs, birds, deer, elk, mice, wild boars and wolves. -Peter Jackson

I'm lucky to get jobs where I get these amazing film horses that make me look much better than I am. -Richard Madden

My character at 'Mel's diner' was involved in betting on the horses and all that. -Vic Tayback

I like the constant rise and fall of the British film industry. But above all, I like the workhorses who kept going no matter what. -Peter Capaldi

Every sport has its dangers. I've been pretty lucky, knock on wood. But I've had really confident, brave and smart horses growing up, which I think is important when you're young. You are working with massive animals over big fences, and especially at this top level, there is really no room for error. -Jessica Springsteen

The best riders in the world with the best horses make it look so elegant and graceful. When you watch it done well, it looks so easy that it's difficult for the public to understand how hard this really is. -Jessica Springsteen

I think some horses are meant to do… eventing or dressage. We have Western horses who canter around. I think it takes, especially at the level I'm at now, it takes a horse that wants to do it. -Jessica Springsteen

When I was growing up, kids would go outside and play all day and invent things. And my brothers and I pretended our picnic table was a ship one summer. Our bikes were horses, and our trees were forts. We turned everything in the world into make-believe. -Mary Pope Osborne

I sometimes wonder why I do so much research – I look at other successful writers, and I think it must just be so relaxing to write about flying horses or something, but I have to make it plausible. -Michelle Paver

I want to make the world real. I have to be able to believe that it could happen. I can't put Pegasus in my stories because horses can't fly. It's just a quirk in my brain. -Michelle Paver

I went to high school in Los Angeles, and I grew up riding horses, so that was kind of my life. I always wanted to act. -Halston Sage

I grew up riding horses since I was eight. I rode English style and competed every weekend. I had two horses, Scout and Camille, and they were my babies. It taught me a lot about responsibility and commitment. I hope horses will always be in my life. -Halston Sage

I was in 27 Broadway plays in a row as a kid, and in between, I learned how to play the horses from the stagehands. -Dick Van Patten

I've always loved horses. I had one horse when I was in high school, but I had to sell him because we moved to Germany, and it ripped my heart out, so I never wanted to go through that pain again. When we moved to Cincinnati and Louisville, Kentucky, I was able to ride then. -Nicole Jordan

The old men running the industry just have not got a clue. They've got to come to terms with the fact that Britain is no longer a totally white place where people ride horses, wear long frocks and drink tea. The national dish is no longer fish and chips; it's curry. -Marianne Jean-Baptiste

You read the stories about horses being starved at Santa Anita, but a horse can't starve at Santa Anita! I mean, there's just bags of carrots all over the place; food is everywhere. They don't starve any horses! -Kevin Dunn

There are certain things producers ask you to do, and when I was starting out, I said yes to everything. I was asked, for 'Quo Vadis,' to drive a chariot. I said, 'Oh yes. I'm licenced for all vehicles.' Two days later, I was sitting in this dustbin with two very aggressive horses. I didn't stay in it for long. -Christopher Lee

I spent two years working on building sites, working on the railways as a guard and in a racing stable, exercising racehorses. I learnt to build relationships. The experience of not being stuck in some middle-class bubble taught me things that being at university hadn't. -Nick Davies

When I was a child, I wanted to be a jockey. I love horses, but it's not practical to have one in London. I also wanted to be an accountant, which isn't glamorous at all, but my dad was one, and I quite liked maths. -Lydia Leonard

Twelve years ago, when I was on the Pine Ridge Reservation for 'Thunderheart,' I was dong research into Native American horses that had come into extinction. I was tracing certain Lakota bloodlines, and it became an obsession. -John Fusco

I was interviewing an elder, Chief Fool's Crow, who was the ceremonial chief. He was 103 years old. I was getting his information on the history of Lakota horses. He told me the story of Hidalgo and Frank Hopkins. -John Fusco

Don't swap horses in crossing a stream. -Abraham Lincoln

I wasn't that bothered with school; I was too mad into horses. But I liked reading and was good enough at English and always liked music. -Kate Thompson

You know yourself, once you've had the excitement of riding thoroughbreds, it's not very interesting riding anything else. But I still love horses; I just don't have one any more. -Kate Thompson

The first 'Half-Life' movie treatment pitched to us climaxed with a tearful reunion between enslaved Vortigaunts and their Vortiwives and children. The last one I saw had Black Mesa invaded by a cavalry unit, just so as to feature a scene of bullsquids tearing into armored horses. -Marc Laidlaw

The advent of ebooks is no more going to kill the pleasure of reading than the introduction of the internal combustion engine made horses extinct. -Michael A. Stackpole

Cars did not kill off horses. Digital publishing will not kill off books. -Michael A. Stackpole

I've had injuries in my life from things beyond my control: runaway horses, helicopters that decide to crash on mountaintops, boating accidents – things that were out of my hands. -Christie Brinkley

I love sports – I used to play volleyball really competitively…I went to Junior Olympic qualifiers, and I've ridden horses my whole life. -Gigi Hadid

I only box. It's the only thing that keeps me sane. I can't just go to the gym and run. I'd rather die. I played volleyball and rode horses my entire life, so just, like, moving to a city and having to go the gym was just, like, so weird for me. -Gigi Hadid

We keep horses. I have to keep working. -Martin Clunes

I was a big reader of Zane Grey as a young boy, and so horses and the West figured large in my imagination. -David Bergen

Victorian racehorse owners frequently named their horses after murderers. That was so astonishing. Can you imagine the equivalent today, with a horse named, say, Boston Strangler, running in the Kentucky Derby? This was a new discovery. The Victorians didn't think it was odd, so no one ever mentioned it particularly. -Judith Flanders

I think an old-school Western would kind of be really up my alley and would be so fun, I'm so comfortable in that genre and around horses. -Kaley Cuoco

I have five horses. My first was a professional jumper named Santos. I got him when I was 18. -Kaley Cuoco

There was a time when cowboys respected their horses instead of riding them to death just to show off for a crowd. -Tommy Lee

The horses forced into the chuckwagon races die of heart attacks, broken necks, broken legs, and other injuries. It'd be easy to get off on western tradition without this bloody spectacle. Dude, it's the Old West, not ancient Rome! -Tommy Lee

Gradually, I came to know my horses intimately. You go through every mood they experience and come to view the world much like a horse. -Tim Cope

I didn't like horses when I was a kid. -Mary Gaitskill

I'm a country girl at heart. I think an old-school Western would kind of be really up my alley and would be so fun. I'm so comfortable in that genre and around horses. -Kaley Cuoco

The real lover of cats is one who demands a clearer adjustment to the universe than ordinary household platitudes provide; one who refuses to swallow the sentimental notion that all good people love dogs, children, and horses while all bad people dislike and are disliked by such. -H. P. Lovecraft

In polo, you jump on a horse and you play. To play tennis, you have to train every day. It's your legs that do all the work. In polo, it's the horses' legs. -Adolfo Cambiaso

Without good horses, you are nothing. In polo, it's 70 per cent horse, 30 per cent rider. And I have the best horses. -Adolfo Cambiaso

If you have the right horses and the right team, that's the way to succeed. But you have to work, and you have to improve. Every year, you must get better. -Adolfo Cambiaso

I wanted total control and leadership. I wanted to buy the horses and choose the players. -Adolfo Cambiaso

Here in Argentina, it is easy to practice and play because we have the horses, the land, the players – everything. -Adolfo Cambiaso

In Argentina, we're surrounded by polo ponies. The farm covers roughly 170 hectares, and there are no cattle or sheep, just horses. -Facundo Pieres

Thanks to my father, we were always in good horses. -Facundo Pieres

I've seen a lot of great players that couldn't get to the top because of horses, and I've seen a lot of normal players that got higher and higher because of horses. -Facundo Pieres

If you don't have good horses, it's very tough to win. -Facundo Pieres

You know how every model is like, 'I do yoga.' Well, I find horses have the same effect. -Bella Hadid

My devotion stemmed from my mom's love of horses. I have been riding since I could walk, and the fact that my mom knew everything about horses really helped my passion grow. -Bella Hadid

I used to sail a lot in all kinds of weather, competing on small sailboats in the ocean. And I travel a lot in Iceland on horses every summer, through the wild areas where there's no inhabitants and there are volcanoes. -Baltasar Kormakur

I've been lucky to ride 10 different horses at the Olympics. I'd like to think that of all of them, Big Ben – who was inducted into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame – would still be competitive in the contemporary sport. -Ian Millar

My grandpa would come in with water and flick it on our faces at 6 A.M. and be like, 'If you don't get up to feed the horses, you don't get to ride them.' We'd get up. -Cam

My grandpa was a big cowboy in his values and the way he lived his life. For our family, the ranch represented our family time when we got to drive down through all that desert farmland and Grandpa would wake us up at 5 A.M. to feed the horses if we wanted to earn the right to ride them later. I always had so much fun. -Cam

I'm a teller of stories. I put bloody skins on my back and dance around the fire, and I say what the hunt was like. It's not erudite; it's not intellectual. I sail, run dogs, ride horses, play professional poker, and tell stories about the stuff I've been through. And I'm still a romantic; I still want Bambi to make it out of the fire. -Gary Paulsen

I like playing guys with swords and the horses and stuff like that. -Sean Bean

I remember being told very early on, 'Just say what they want to hear in the audition, and we'll figure it out later on.' So there have been a few tricky moments. I once said I could ride, when the truth is I'm terrified of horses, but I got the job! -Oliver Jackson-Cohen

People tell me how great it must have been to ride horses and stuff. Well, do it for two days straight on dusty days when the cows and horses were really tired. -Arthur Slade

My friends all tell me I was born with a horseshoe up my butt. -Michael Trucco

When people chat to me about my childhood and getting into horses, they're like, 'Was it like the birds sang and the sun came out? Was it an amazing experience?' I'm like, 'No, it was rubbish. I was frightened. I was pretty unbalanced, and most ponies took advantage of me.' -Lee Pearson

My motivation is paying the mortgage. No joke. Honestly. I still suffer with nerves and think, 'Why am I putting myself through this torture?' It's not actually the love of winning – it's that building of a partnership with a horse. Just riding horses every day keeps me going. And that threat of losing the mortgage. -Lee Pearson

I don't just love riding; I love horses. I was in the field at my yard watching them gallop around and play the other day. That's what keeps me going, and sometimes it has to be something more than just winning. -Lee Pearson

Before taking up dressage, I'd distanced myself from the Paralympics because I hadn't wanted to be defined by my disability. Then when I grew up and got an office job, things started to change. I'm actually allergic to horses, but I'm even more allergic to paperwork! -Lee Pearson

I understand when people think dressage is boring. But while your standard horse is like driving a Fiesta, our horses are like driving Formula One cars. I can't breathe without the horse reacting. You are training another being to become really responsive and athletic and powerful. -Lee Pearson

I just love the development of horses, getting into their brains, making them more athletic and powerful, responsive, and I'm rubbish at everything else. -Lee Pearson

I'm a gay disabled man who has become very successful. I don't get up in the morning and think I'm inspirational; I just get up thinking that I love horses. -Lee Pearson

My great grandfather had been the neighbourhood 'horse whisperer,' so I've probably loved horses since I was an embryo. Whenever I watched cowboy films as a small child, I wasn't watching the hunky cowboys – which I'd probably do now – I was watching the horses. Even now, I love sitting in the field just watching the way they move. -Lee Pearson

When I was ten, I won the horseshoe-throwing contest at summer camp. I was also the Wiffle ball champion in my town. -Dwayne Johnson

Lincoln and Clinton had a lot in common in the way they were elected: In both cases, they were dark horses. In both cases, they were from small states. In both cases, they were not the favorite for their parties' nomination. -Dick Morris

I could scrape water off horses all day long. That would never get boring. -Victoria Pendleton

I remember some people after the Olympics that had no idea about horses would ask, 'Do you do that with the horse, or does the horse do it by itself?' I think the fact that you can make it look like you are doing nothing is a real talent. And it is such a massive reward at the end of it. -Charlotte Dujardin

From about 700 B.C. to A.D. 500, the vast territory of Scythia, stretching from the Black Sea to China, was home to diverse but culturally related nomads. Known as Scythians to Greeks, Saka to the Persians, and Xiongnu to the Chinese, the steppe tribes were masters of horses and archery. -Adrienne Mayor

Archaeologists have been digging up thousands of graves of people called Scythians by the Greeks. They turn out to be people whose women fought, hunted, rode horses, used bows and arrows, just like the men. -Adrienne Mayor

Unlike settled, patriarchal societies such as classical Greece and Rome, where women stayed home to weave and mind children, the lives of nomadic steppe tribes centered on horses and archery. -Adrienne Mayor

Indeed, many ancient Greek writers do treat Amazons as a tribe of men and women. They credit the tribe with innovations such as ironworking and domestication of horses. Some early vase paintings show men fighting alongside Amazons. -Adrienne Mayor

My mother grew up around horses and exposed my sister and I to riding early on. It was very important to her. -Georgina Bloomberg

I've always put my horses, dogs, and pig before my own needs, so I was well prepared to put my son first. I'm used to waking up in the middle of the night… no matter how tired I am, jumping up to take care of my animals. Now, I do the same for my son. -Georgina Bloomberg

If you look at how people use the term 'western,' you can only conclude that it means a movie that has big hats and horses. And if you really want to sound like you've been thinking, then you'll use a term like 'genre.' But all the hell it seems to mean is big hats and horses. Which is not all that deeply analytical. -Tommy Lee Jones

I like to make movies on the west side of the Mississippi River, and a lot of times, the movies I direct have horses and big hats in them and get called westerns, but that's okay. I used to resent that, but I don't anymore. -Tommy Lee Jones

Riding uses so many different muscles. I ride two to three horses a day, and I ride almost every day when I'm not working or traveling. You use your legs, your arms, your back. It's a very complete sport. -Charlotte Casiraghi

I always look at 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail.' They talked about how they wrote this movie with horses, and then they realized that horses are super-expensive and time-consuming. 'Why don't we just change it to coconuts?' That's part of my process. -Jonathan Krisel

Summertime in Montana, I become a monosyllabic baboon. I want to ride with the cowboys, go to brandings, doctor cattle, and train my horses. But in a few months, the snow starts to fly. The days become shorter; the yellow color of interior light becomes delicious. I look at my shelves, and every book just glows, and I want to be inside of that. -Thomas McGuane

The barn doors are open, and the horses are running out because we've got guns all over the place. It's basically a cold war for individuals: you've got a nuclear bomb, and I've got a nuclear bomb, and the only thing stopping us from using them is the fact we both have them. -Jeff Bridges

Westerns are simple stories where there's good and there's evil and where people had a sense of space and freedom. Growing up in the city, as a kid, you've never really seen that before. It's a beautiful dream to go from concrete to big skies, dirt and horses. -Antoine Fuqua

I was a professional gambler. When I lived in London, there were a couple of years when I didn't really earn money doing anything else. I mean, I did other things: like, I made work, and I was working with Derek Jarman at the time, but the way I made money was putting money on horses. -Tilda Swinton

Central African farmers don't have any animal power because sleeping sickness kills all the animals – cattle, the horses, the burros and the mules. So draft animals don't exist, and farming is all by hand, and the hand tools are hoes and machetes. -Norman Borlaug

My heart started running away, like a pack of horses. Then it slowed down and became irregular. -Kevin Nealon

I grew up in Hollywood in an apartment. Then in Tarzana, California, on a mini ranch where we owned horses and chickens. -Juliette Lewis

A Persian army being then subject to great inconveniences, for their horses are tied and generally shackled to prevent them from running away, and if an alarm happens, a Persian has the housing to fix, his horse to bridle, and his corslet to put on before he can mount. -Xenophon

When I was really young, my babysitters had horses, and I started riding them. -Sam Hunt

People don't buy horses to ride around any more for transportation. I just think the world changes. As a business, we have to make the proper adjustments. -Troy Carter

You know that saying, 'You broke it, you bought it'? With horses, if you don't make sure it's a good fit… they tend to break you. -Taylor Sheridan

I'm a big believer in 'Trojan horses' – There are certain themes that are more palatable when wrapped in something fun or distracting. -Marti Noxon

If you have a horse that can beat horses worth $20,000, typically you enter it in a $20,000 claiming race. Now there might be people who feel their horse is worth $20,000, and they say, 'I wouldn't mind seeing the horse get beat.' So they'll enter it for $40,000 so the horse looks like it's performed badly. -David Milch

Most races are claiming races. For the lower-caliber horses, it's a way the track has of forcing people to run their horses at approximately the price at which they would not mind having the horse bought. -David Milch

I keep endlessly busy with all kinds of stuff, mostly horses, cattle, livestock, things like that. -Sam Shepard

The Gobi is in many ways like the old American West, filled with abandoned hamlets and buildings, traces of disappeared peoples. Across its oceanic blond grass, horses and the black silhouettes of camels move languidly, as if they are the only inhabitants. Ancient Turkic nomads left enigmatic petroglyphs carved into boulders 2,000 years ago. -Lawrence Osborne

Fans of the hit HGTV show 'Fixer Upper' are well aware that its stars, Chip and Joanna Gaines, live on a farm in Waco, Texas. Nearly every episode features some kind of montage of their four kids romping outside with various kinds of farm animals, from pigs to horses to goats. -Kelly Evans

I do love horses, but I'd rather be on motorcycles. -Jason Momoa

If athletes went to the races more and to the backside in the morning, I think more people would get involved because, as an athlete, we can relate to what the horses go through. Training routine, injuries, massages, etc. -Rashard Lewis

I love the outdoors. I love getting to hunt and fish and work on the land and ride our horses. -Jake Peavy

The last 200 years, we've had an incredible amount of automation. We have tractors that do the work that horses and people used to do on farms. We don't dig ditches by hand anymore. We don't pound tools out of wrought iron. We don't do bookkeeping with books! But this has not, in net, reduced the amount of employment. -David Autor

Getting a bunch of horses to just stand there all day and do nothing is much harder than getting them to run around. -Miguel Sapochnik

I grew up on a working farm. It was small, a hundred acres, but we had cows and pigs and chickens and sheep and a vegetable garden. I spent hours pulling weeds, hoeing, feeding the horses, cleaning out the stalls. My dad was a tough taskmaster. I always worked, but we also had fun. -Henry Paulson

As I like to say, if you want to pay attention to a horse race, put two dollars on a horse, and you'll pay enormous attention to all 11 horses in the race. -Tom Steyer

I'm not a great horse person, but I love horses, and I love all of it. The sights and sounds and smells, the whole genre of Westerns – I love them. -Mary Steenburgen

We had six horses, and I would compete. Jumping. Cabinets full of cups. I always won. -Louise Wilson

I was so annoyed that I took it to a friend's house in the country. -Ennio Morricone

My wife and I started a breeding program where we breed American quarter horses. -Brady Jandreau

I've worked with horses since I was a little kid. -Brady Jandreau

I feed horses and goats and sheep all day and, once in a while, come and talk about movies. -Steve Zahn

I was thrust, excitingly, via 'Elizabeth' and 'Shakespeare in Love,' into a position one can only dream of, but it was startling, too. I was offered a multitude of roles riding horses in flouncy shirts, and I just thought, 'Hang on, I've just done that. What next?' -Joseph Fiennes

One day, I'll be photographing Kate Moss in Paris, then I'll be on Stephanie Seymour's ranch with her hundred horses wondering what exactly it is I'm doing there. -Juergen Teller

'Lonesome Dove' was the movie. I watched that over and over and over again, and I know every line.

'Horse Soldiers' is the untold story of how a small band of U.S. Special Forces soldiers secretly entered Afghanistan in 2001, just five weeks after September 11, saddled up on horses, and rode to an improbable victory against a vastly larger Taliban and Al Qaeda army. -Doug Stanton

I was riding every single day. I home-schooled because of horses. -Noah Cyrus

I asked for a horse for Christmas, and I got one! It's an adult horse. I didn't want a 5-year-old, which is a teenager for horses. It has a beautiful gait. It's the Cadillac of horses. -Rick Harrison

Spending time with the horses was also a good place to escape to if you were having a bad day, so it was good from a mental point of view. -Millie Bright
