Who said "The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man?" My husband is beginning to think I made this up since I can't remember the source. Thanks.

There is no source for this old saying, adage, axiom, etc.
So, you can tell your husband that you did not make it up. Many people have used it.

The North American Riding for the Handicapped Association, Purina and several equestrian special need groups offer another “must”. Because the old adage, “The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man” is so true.

It was one of Reagan's favorites, but it was quoted earlier in the century by Lord Palmerston ("There's nothing so good for the inside of a man as the outside of a horse"). It was also credited to Oliver Wendell Holmes, Dr. John Abernethy and Woodrow Wilson's physician, Dr. Gary Grayson.


In 1946, M.C. Self, writing in Horseman's Encyclopedia, said "There is something about the outside of a horse which is good for the inside of a man."

The author of this quote was the great horseman, the Duke of Beaufort. Not sure why so many other people are given credit instead -- guess the others were just quoting him.
