Riding Theme Song?

My trainer suggests to all her riders that we pick a theme song to sing in our head while riding that motivates us and calms our nerves. I've been thinking about this for months and haven't been able to come up with anything! I want something that gives me confidence and increases our energy. Does anyone else have a song they think of when riding?

No but it sounds like a good idea. I can't stand NOT having music around, always have a radio playing in the background. So I'll have to think of one for myself now too! What type of music are you into?

It sounds really silly but I find it fun and relaxing to sing (sometimes out loud) the Bonanza Theme while riding. Sometimes my Horse will sing along with a nice little whinny :) It makes me feel like I am on some adventure

BrightEyes, that song might bring back my fear issues! I'd keep focusing on the bones shatter lines...ha ha!!!!!! BTW, love your avatar.

My "riding theme song" changes from gait to gait and horse to horse. Different rhythms fit different horses and different movements. Holding something steady like a song in your head can also help your horse find a balanced rhythm, on top of relaxing you and helping you move with, not fight against, the horse's natural rhythm.

I like soundtrack music, for some reason... This really captures Scout's big swinging "We're goin' on a trail ride!!" walk.

Great for riding Legacy and practicing her lateral movement and circles and speed transitions. It has a great beat and I include lots of circles, serpentines, diagonal changes, shoulder in, bending lines, figure 8's. I used to dance to this song when I was a stripper so that might be why its' easy for me to "choreograph" riding to it. Good song anyway.

And this is Caleigh's. Her ears perk up and she picks her back up and acts on it so I've decided this fits her well.

Wow those are both amazing songs! I had to laugh out loud when I read the title to that first one...'bones shatter' I thought "Great, that should be MY riding song!" but I like it 'we wont stop because we're only getting better'...now I'll really have to think of one. There's one that comes to mind but I can't think of the name of it. It was on my old MP3 player and whenever I heard it I thought about going riding
