Giddyup




Being so aware
of body posture
head high
follow the lead
dressed in tack

Standing still
concentrated
to serve looking 
straight ahead
knees up

stepping
in a circle
Your reins
and whip
guiding me

Neatly to follow
stepping beautifully
so focused
on what I do
gagged by bit

Being so aware
of body posture
head high
follow the lead
dressed in tack

The tail
tickling
hoofs loudly
on the pavement
click clacking

Until ordered
to stay
being bathed
after training
soaking wet

I never really understood (I did not judge badly, I simply could not understand personally) what the point of "pony" is in play. This post finally makes it clear to me. I understand now. You say it perfectly.

Neither did I, until I was taken on that journey and felt the impact. love ara
