Coloradans have tremendous vitality and energy. They all seem to be athletes. Great horsemen, too. The Westernaires provided a whole Cavalry troop for a movie that I was working on in Colorado a few years ago. During the filming they put on a show for us. The jumping and formation riding was really spectacular.
— Norman Rockwell, talking about working alongside the Westernaires Cavalry team on the set of "Stagecoach" in 1966

Why can’t we all give more of our time to young people? We should not criticize them. We should give them the guidance that only our experience can provide. They’re in need of that, they want it, they relish having real discipline. I’d like to see more people helping the young people. More people making that a way of life after retirement when they can spend more of their time without the press of business. I’d like to see them spend it helping others, helping young people, helping to guide them. There are a lot of ways that it can be done.
— Elmer E. Wyland, Westernaires Founder and Director from 1949 until his passing in 1983
