On the Horse -- H. H. Eisenbart



http://www.livejournal.com/users/pandemo/446061.html

Where in all the world is nobility found without conceit? Where is there friendship without envy? Where is beauty without vanity? Here one finds gracefulness coupled with power, and strength tempered with gentleness. A constant servant, yet no slave. A fighter, ever without hostility. Our history was written on his back. We are his heirs. But he is his own heritage, the horse.
    -- H. H. Eisenbart, in Eisenbart and Buhrer: The Kingdom of the Horse (1969)
