For Your Horse’s Sake

FOR YOUR HORSE’S SAKE
 By Neil Davies

When  you walk into the stable
Don't try to show who's boss
Your horse won't understand you
And he'll be at a loss
Instead, just go and rub his head
Be kind, and furthermore 
When you walk into the stable
Leave your ego at the door

When you walk into the paddock
You must go to your horse
Don't think that he should come to you
Don't chase or yell or force
Just take some feed to catch him
In this there's no debate
When you walk into the paddock
Leave your ego at the gate

 Every time you ride your horse
 Think before you ask
 Make it easy, always question
 If he’s ready for the task
 And when you have a problem
 Don’t throw your weight around
 Every time you ride your horse
 Leave your ego on the ground

Whenever you are with your horse
 Show him kindness first
 Be nice and friendly always
 And never think the worst
 It’s sometimes not that easy
 To know what’s in his mind
 But whenever you are with your horse
 Leave your ego far behind
