"Booted and Saddled"

Thomas Jefferson is remembered for this quote: "the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately, by the grace of god...."

And there is no greater proof than this 1/3/17 Daily Telegraph article:
Prince Harry has said that saving endangered animals is "God's test" for humanity.

The royal said that if we cannot save elephants from extinction then humanity may be in danger too.
He called for an international body to regulate anyone who owns or manages wildlife in his strongest comments on conservation so far.
There are strong arguments for protecting endangered species, but this is one of those "I don't believe he believes that" statements designed to curry favor with ecocrazies.
