Consider Your Horse

CONSIDER YOUR HORSE

By Neil Davies

Do you think your horse enjoys it

When you tie him up to fight

Do you really think he’s happy

As he pulls with all his might

Do you think your horse is having fun

When you chase him from the ground

Do you really think he loves it

As he’s running round and round

Do you think your horse knows what to do

When you flap a tarp or flag

Do you really think he understands

Why you hit him with a bag

Do you think your horse kicks for a lark

When you lasso his hind feet

Do you really think you have to win

And dominate and defeat

Horses just don’t think that way

They’re not looking for a boss

They don’t want to fight, they don’t keep score  

Of who has won and lost

The simple tool we all can use

You know I’ve always said

Don’t be proud, go to your horse

And rub him on the head
