Horse Haiku of the Day, by Kelly Hageman

Horse life in 17 syllables.

Each morning we release a fresh new horsey haiku into the Internet ether. Today’s haiku comes from reader Kelly Hageman, who explains, “This is my eventing mare, Reba. Thankfully she is very good about saving me when we get to those long spots!”


Approaching the jump,

Heels down, eyes up, then OH CRAP!

Reba, take the wheel!!!

Thanks for sharing, Kelly! Judging from the expression on Reba’s face in that photo, she’s got it all under control. Before we head out, one more for haiku from all of us here at Horse Nation:
