First Show of the Season

The year’s first show began our quest
To put our gelding to the test.
This apparition on patrol
Took every turn to rock and roll.
Apologizing we are not
For putting others on the spot.
They came to play, and so did we,
My daughter and her horse and me.
This thoroughbred of darkest bay
Adores the limelight on display.
A competition draws him out,
Eliminating judges’ doubt.
His secret lies within his chest
With heart that beats above the rest.
A well-placed fence is opportune,
And for his girl, he’ll jump the moon.
The season opener, of course,
He took in stride, this glory horse.
Though twilight beckoned, no retreat,
He leapt to win, the course complete.
He lost the right lead, but returned
And ripped the runaway unspurned.
His pilot, decked in tailored threads,
Flashed pearly teeth and turned all heads.
As sunset crept across the clouds,
And battle scars befell the crowds,
We packed our tack to homeward crawl
And hang his ribbons on his stall.
