Horse Haiku

We’re dusting off HN’s beloved “Horse Haiku” series to showcase these amazing poems sent to us by reader and dressage enthusiast Liz Maslin. Thanks Liz!

From Liz:

How bright the puddle
sky above at X reflects.
Could that be my face?

Look behind quickly
judge at C trailer shields.
We must flee monsters!

White socks gleam under sun.
My rider is perfection.
Green goo necessary.

Calm man whispers near.
Closer inspection needed.
What does get off my “*!!++&&” foot mean?

Bolt shy buck rear spin.
Black letters on white fences fly.
I love dressage tests!

Leg-yield left shoulder-in,
I concentrate my efforts.

Softly waving grass
white ribboned fence for miles.
Can you say ohm?

Crisply green my hay
delicate stems snowflake leaves
All mine and not yours!
