I know my horse. She bucks.

I could probably be someone who rides the broncos at the rodeo.

I have no fear though, because I am who I am, I just have that kind of luck!

People flip out even though I just feel the jolt, I know
You must think I’m crazy.
When I get on in the saddle, I feel calm; I know what she is capable of.
She doesn’t scare me, plus she knows I’m not lazy.
I know she means well, she is a gentle as a dove.

But she has what seems like infinite power! I know she bucks.

I know it’s wrong, but just sitting in the saddle feeling the jolt, I slide

Forward. I usually never fall in the muck.

But when I do, I know that she’s on my side.
Whatever she does I know she doesn’t mean.
Because we are just that kind of team.

When horse and rider trust each other, it's wonderful - and it's obvious, this writer trusts her horse a lot! And riding is always an adventure.
