I have so many songs for my horses. I have a series of journals on this forum which have song reference titles. I even have a CD I made with my "horse life soundtrack." Different events and different years all have different "theme songs" I associate with them.

When I was 14, I got my first horse Baby Girl, and "The Dog Days Are Over" by Florence and the Machine was our song. It was a new chapter of my life, and I wanted to run and live and have fun. It's a fun, happy song, but it also has this one verse:

"And I never wanted anything from you
Except everything you had and what was left after that too"

Basically the thesis of my and Baby Girl's relationship, for better or worse. Because I wanted to have fun, but I also passionately wanted to win.


My second year with Baby Girl, I found out she had PSSM. She almost died. We had to make an epic comeback that no one thought was possible. So I found us an epic comeback song -- "Where We Belong" by Thriving Ivory.


Third year with Baby Girl began the campaign for a national championship. The struggle is very real. We had so many problems, and no one expected us to get as far as we've gotten. So year three gets "Chances Are" by Five For Fighting.

"Eight to five or two to one,
Lay your money on the sun
Until we crash, what have we done
Is there a better bet than love?"


And each of my horses have a "master theme song." Baby Girl has "Fixing Titanium" by Mashup Germany.


My other horse Miss Kitty doesn't have a year theme of her own yet, but she does have a main theme: an instrumental cover of "Dustland Fairytale" by The Killers. Because the instrumental does sound like fairy tale music, and I met Kitty by a perfect act of fate. Like a fairy tale.



And then there is the song that will play when the credits roll in my imaginary movie. "True Love" by Angels and Airwaves.

Great songs everybody!!

For me, Its a tie between "I woke up in a car" by Something Corporate and "The Mixed Tape" by Jack's Mannequin.

I woke up in a car is about traveling and adventure and I've just always related to that song. The mixed tape is harder to explain, but it has always reminded me of Drifter.

I'll often sing songs to my horse and myself whilst on trail, one of my favorites being "She's a Rainbow" by The Rolling Stones:

or

"40 Day Dream" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros:
(Actual music starts at the one minute mark)
Also, one of the lesson horses, nicknamed "Moose", I used to ride was always hurting herself and we would CONSTANTLY have to apply Corona to her new wounds. When I bought my mare, Rosie, I was a little nervous that she would hurt herself often, resulting in constant Corona patches. But one day my sister and I were listening to "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" by Paul Simon:
One line is "Goodbye Rosie, Queen of Corona" and it rid me of my worry, almost reassuring me that she wouldn't be the "Queen of Corona"

Lately "I Walk the Line" has made me think of my boy. And also I sometimes sing him "Purple People Eater."

Oh so many! Max likes to dance to this one especially (we have a sound system in the arena and he's taken to stepping to the beat of the songs playing- especially at the trot!)


And this one reminds me of my pony:


And this one, just for those quiet days enjoying the moment with your horse in a slice of heaven:


Btw, all of these songs people have posted are gorgeous, thanks for helping add to my ridiculously large collection! :)
