Thoroughbred Horse Quotes and Sayings – Best Horse Quotes 2023

Queen Elizabeth has been a true horse lover for more than 90 years. We have seen many pictures of Queen Elizabeth Horse riding or in the Netflix Series “The Crown” her entire family seems to be truly passionate about horse riding. During our research on the best horse quotes we were surprised to find that Winston Churchill seemed to be a true horse lover as well. We would have loved to see Queen Elizabeth and Winston Churchill to take a ride through the Scottish Highlands.

The English Thoroughbred is what warms the Queens heart. She is passionate about her race horse and her horse trainer also plays an important part in The Crown. 

The English Thoroughbred is what motivated the Queen to take a very private trip to Kentucky. “During those visits, she stayed at Lane’s End, a farm in Versailles owned by her friend William Farish and where she stabled horses.” 

In 1989 “she visited about a dozen Central Kentucky horse farms to look at thoroughbreds, including a few mares she boarded. She was looking at stallions and considering them as possible sires for her royal horse-breeding operation.” 

In 2007 Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Philip visited the Kentucky Derby. It was her first visit to Churchill Downs and for many visitors her presence was at least as exciting as the Derby itself. Queen Elizabeth`s Kentucky Derby dress had a light mint color with a pink and green hat.
