equestrian haikus

The other day Aimee posted something in the comments that was almost a haiku, and it cracked me up.  And then I thought, holy shit equestrian haikus that is such a good idea.  Plus, I’m sick in bed and mostly consuming hot chocolate as sustenance, so why NOT write a bunch of haikus?

Chicken wingin’, leg swingin’
Make George Morris proud

What do you mean I
Need to sit tall to fences?
Oh I get it now.

Stretch tall but sit down,
Inside leg to outside rein
Maybe it will work

Neck braced, back so stiff,
I shall not relax, no way.
Dressage is torture

Gangsta leans are great
For ghost-riding or rappers.
Not so for riding.

New jumps, rustling leaves,
Flowers, cars, lawn chairs, shavings:
Shit my horse spooks at

Flying over hill and dale
Oh what a feeling

Anyone else want to join in?  I figure we can make a whole thing of it… you know… one of those things.

For fun, and since I always sew a bit more during the holidays, there will be some fun sewn prizes up for grabs as well.  Probably a saddle cover and a quarter sheet.  But I’m not quite sure yet.

Edit: Okay, so here’s the deal.  We are going to haiku until the end of November.  You have time because I am not one to rush poetry out of anyone.  At the end of November I will decide on two haikus for give-away.  At first inclination, I want to do this based on awesomeness, but I’ve already seen some really funny and hilarious haikus.  So I think it’s going to be random again.  There will be two items up for grabs.

quarter1. A quarter sheet made in teal/white chevrons.  Like below, but imagine it fits your horse better, because this was my first horsey sewing project and I got impatient with the measuring.

Now, show me your haikus!

    1. You just write your own haikus (or answer the question or write about the prompt, depending on the topic), and post a link in the comments (or link back to me so I can find you), and everyone gets to appreciate your awesome haikus along with me! 😀
