Hands high by fifteen, standing proud and tall,
Arabian, Miniature, Clydesdales, this girl knows them all,
Look at her on Comet, not flying through the air
Leaping over hurdles with elegance and flair,
Equestrianism is in her blood, she’ll never have her fill,
Saddling up her charger, preparing for the drill,

Cantering or dressage, she shows her handling skill,
Overcoming obstacles with footsteps sound and slow,
M arching to the music or jumping in a show,
Every time improving, she’s mastering the knack,
Trotting, sprinting, galloping, loves being on horseback.
