"Look into a horses eyes and see generations of loyalty for what? Nothing... America's history was built on the back of a horse and yet the human race shows no respect for that.... most people have never even rode a horse.....horse is nothing but innocence....." - Briley Burgess

a kind eye. horses truly do have the most beautiful eyes, you can see their soul through them

At 101 years old, Connie was still riding her horse every day. She taught over 36,000 girls to ride at a girls summer camp over a span of 70 years. She was a huge inspiration to many people. Her health was great and her mind was sharp. I asked her what her secret to longevity was. She said, "Well Honey, you just don’t let that rocking chair take over…you get up and go even if you don’t want to." ~ Connie Reeves

Secretariat. His heart was 2x larger than the average equine heart, considered a massive "engine". Look at him fly!!!

That right there proves horses can fly without touching the ground!

Feb. 3, 1989: Apprentice jockey Nate Hubbard hung on for second literally when his horse, Sweetwater Oak, stumbled near the finish line at Golden Gate Fields and flipped the rider out of his saddle. As he tumbled forward, Hubbard grabbed on to the fillys neck and hung in mid-air until the race was over. The track stewards ruled it an official finish because Hubbards feet never touched the ground and Sweetwater Oak carried her assigned weight throughout the race.

Beautiful Barbaro...2006 Kentucky Derby Winner RIP 1/27/2007

Barbaro finished first at the 2006 Kentucky Derby race. His finish in that race…

This is Charismatic, the horse that might have won the Triple Crown in 1999 if his leg hadn't broken during the Belmont. He won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. He managed to come in third with a broken leg. He's still alive today thanks to the quick action of Chris Antley who hopped off and held his leg till the vets arrived. Sometimes my job sucks

Just Say Whoa

Charismatic and Chris Antley. such a heartbreaking moment. He was so close to winning the Triple Crown

Greatest of All Time...Secretariat's iconic 1973 31 length win for the Triple Crown at Belmont.

Big Red, I'd have loved to ride him what a horse.

SECRETARIAT the amazing 1973 U. Triple Crown winner setting race records that still stand today! He is considered to be one of the greatest racehorses of all time and he wouldn’t go anywhere without his beloved groom, Mr. Eddie Sweat…~j
