Show Riders Have A Horse,
And They Love to Do A Course.
When They Are Done,
They Wait Around to See If They Have Won.

Chasing the Dream
Striving to obtain all lofty goals set,
while dwelling not upon those never met.
Refusing to quit and staying the course,
getting up from the dust and back on the horse.
No matter how discouraging things may seem,
these all are a part of chasing...Read More

Horse drawn carriages were at the will of the stag
What if he had a scrap with his nagging old nag
Must be the same
In the equestrian game
It's a universal complaint for us male fleabags

Flat out speed
Hot blooded steed

Speed walking race
With unmatched grace

Fearless full fledge
Ace over hedge

Arabesques on display
The equestrian ballet

Flowing feathered heels
Beer on wheels

Rent the power
By the hour

I looked a gift horse in the mouth
I swear it stared right back at me
And dared me to get equestrian with him
A healthy fear of animals
Larger than oneself
Ended our standoff 
And we both left pissed off...Read More

Premium Member Elite Lament
We of the upper persuasion
resent the insipid invasion
of the lessers you see who lack pedigree
who properly are nothing like me.

My people have always been seen
where miscreants never have been
playing polo the equestrian way
or golfing where elites only play.

Better to inherit...Read More

Equestrian Horse

out of the vials of the pit of my soul
 one may evoke fear or that which hurts you the most
 I had fallen asleep after a bitter long day
 hadn't had the time to bow the knee to pray

Midsummer Coal Night
O Kentucky, my love
Why doth thou wear such a sad Equus frown — 
Hast not thine squire Apprentice
	swept thy Medicaid stalls clean?
Though stable be thy bridled heart,

 a Church chill shalt descend Down
Giving thus thine joyously warm soul

With no nerve feeling in her fingers or feet.

The elegance is a born gift
The elegance is a natural fact
That some beings do receive
Even before their birth.

And, the elegance is a delight!
A delight present in the allure.
Aye. The allure as the posture.
With a simple glance, revealed.

Olympic Equestrians
Nothing is so beautiful
as equestrian events,
watching graceful horses,
while droppings add their scents.

For true equine lovers,
there is such a thrill
in the coordination of
a well-performed quadrille.

This is one Olympic sport,
where both he and she compete.
Jumping fences or dressage;
they're equal at the meet....Read More

And has arlthrogryposis multiplex congenita,
Which he was born with in 1974, not bitter.

‘Cos since Sydney 2000 he’s a perfectionist;

Man and Horse Compared
Seeing sculpture compared to painting
Contrasted imagery alluding to victory
With victor being both man and animal
Subservience dominates both images
Bare head and feet noticeable to viewer
A horse head raised; the other lowered
Who are these men and beasts?
Smug facial expression common to both

I've always admired 
and I guess I most surely 
always will
No legend without em'

Ride them to a trot, ride 
them to a canter

The Headless Greenlandic Horseman
A Meditation in 6 parts.


The sky is starry

plus Dansk and English! What a man!
