This Horse, armored athlete, beast of sinew and grace;
Is a creature, not born of Mare, but born of Men and born to race;
Of the Trainer, whose eye judges angles and form;
Of the Saddler, whose fingers craft leather with awl;
Of the Farrier; whose knees support hoof to be shod;
Of the Groom, whose voice reassures in the stalls;
Of the Jockey, who–at speed–scarcely moves;
Each one is a craftsman, a Master of Art who tames a storm of silk and muscle, and savors The Thunder of Hooves.
