The Backyard Horse Blog
Twas the night before the horse show
And all through my mind
Lurked excitement and worriment
Would I come out victorious, whatever that means?
Or experience embarrassment due to what the day brings?
Win-loose-learn or somewhere in between
It is always an opportunity to do what makes my heart sing
Sitting on the horse’s back, floating through time and space
There is no other more appealing place
The show will be over in the blink of an eye
Then for better or worse I will breath out a sigh
Later I will dream of the next chance to say
Remember, fellow riders, to breath, look up and ENJOY your show day
This poem written with a spirit of gratitude towards every horse who has ever stepped into the show ring, be it a local fun show or on up to the Olympics. Win, loose or learn. Thank you.
