Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #223 – May 23, 2016



No one ever came to grief—except honorable grief—through riding horses. No hour of life is lost (or wasted) that is spent in the saddle. Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing horses, but never through riding them; unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die.

— WINSTON CHURCHILL, British Statesman, 1874–1965
