Just wanted to let you know Churchill never said this or anything like this. The actual quote is "There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man," and it is often misattributed to Churchill. The people who run Churchill's museum say he never said it. Churchill did have a quote with a similar meaning that he really did say: "No hour of life is lost that is spent in the saddle."

As for "There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man," there's no real record of who said it first. Ronald Reagan definitely said it, but it was around many years before him. There is some agreement that it dates back to Lord Palmerston, the British PM in the 1800s.



You are absolutely correct but I did some research and found that Churchill was indeed phrased as saying this but it also admits that Churchill was perhaps not the first to coin the phrase.

As I am South African, which is a former British colony as well as a current member of the Commonwealth, I thought I would stick with him.

If you feel I am making a misrepresentation, let me know and I will be glad to change it.

I predict Bob will wait until after he hears the reason why before a comment, that way if hes right he can say, I told you so, if he is wrong, he can just not say anything.

Unless you are referring to Christmas time, I would have to agree with you :)

My prediction, you will be shocked, but just a guess considering forum posts have nothing to do with it most likely. Real world events I guess.
