Favorite Quote:
“I try to believe like I believed when I was five... when your heart tells you everything you need to know.”
-Lucy Liu

Triumph and noble

Beautiful and Graceful

Loyal and Courageous

Their hooves digging into the dirt

Flinging it high in the air

Running in flight

Their hearts beating faster and faster

Their breath becoming quicker

Their riders bouncing up and down

The sun beating on their silks

Faster they run, freedom around the corner

They cling to the rail, chasing each other

Challenging all who try to surpass them

Determination locked in the eyes

Their legs move swift and tails lick the air

Their coats gleaming in the afternoon light

Glistening and gleaming, they shine.

They will never stop

Until they win.
