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

 

Every time you’re 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 every time you’re with your horse

Leave your ego far behind
