Highway to the Danger Zone would be great for us! Definately has a good tempo to push Zee's butt in gear. And easily remembered for singing in my head!

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

I need some crazy rock type stuff (and some rap) like Disturbed or Hed P.E. for jumping. When I'm just trail riding I want some nice easy country music like Casey donahue, Stoney Larue, Tim McGraw. And when I'm depressed and riding and wanna get away from my problems I listen to Runaway by Love and Theft.

For Jack, his song is literally Bad to the Bone by George Thoroughgood,lol. A friend made a DVD of him for me and guess what was playing through the whole thing?

For Stalker, the stud I will start showing in the spring, it's Tush by ZZ Top. Every time I hear it I think of riding him,lol. Although, Smooth would be a good one for him too!

All through the holidays, I kept singing All I Want For Christmas by Mariah Carey to Zee. It has a great tempo and the lyrics were perfect from me to him!!! LOL!

Great thread! Yes I have a riding theme song. I've never admitted what it actually is because it's so ridiculous. However, whenever im really focused and checking in on my rhythm I cant help it, it just pops into my head. Its the theme song from looney tunes. I can't recall not thinking of it from time to time so I must have started this when I first started riding as a kid. Here am I at 30 years old, and it's still the looney tunes song. Don't judge! =)

I have a few that pop into my head frequently while I ride:

I Should Have Been a Cowboy: Toby Kieth (And yes, I've been caught singing this one out loud on the trails)

That's Not My Name: The Ting Tings

Bulletproof: La Roux

Get Off on the Pain: Gary Allan

Stuck Like Glue: Sugarland

There are a bazillion others, but this is a good range of speeds and "feels".

Van Halen-Running With the Devil (this was always my motivating song when I ran too)

As far as riding I can especially relate to the part that says "yes I'm living at a pace that kills" =)

If you want horse related songs: Wildfire(I love this one too, maybe this is my OTHER theme song), A Horse With no Name, Wild Horses, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, and Rodeo by Garth Brooks. OH! and That Girl is a Cowboy also by Garth Brooks. :)

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.
