I Am a Horsewoman

I Am a Horsewoman

 

Bucks Superwind

 

I am a horsewoman filled with grace and grit

I wonder what we’ll discover today

I hear a soft whicker in the distance

I see a black mane and tale, white star and legs, soft, dark eye

I want to strive for feel, timing and balance

I am a horsewoman filled with grace and grit

 

Bucks Superwind

 

I pretend I am back in the old days, traveling in a saddle

I feel the hard bit in my warm, open heart

I touch a finger to mane and stoke down and through

I worry about nothing knowing confidence is preparation

I cry out to the heavens and thank Creator for his gift

I am a horsewoman filled with grace and grit

I understand my horse, see his spirit, dance and move as one making the wrong thing difficult and the right thing easy

I say let’s go, boy and make new memories

I dream of riding up mountains and through creeks, able to recognize the smallest change, realize thought with purpose gives the horse direction

I try to push his potential, knowing the little things make a big difference

I hope for only his best try, the slightest try, so I can give the quickest release

I am a horsewoman filled with grace and grit
