"A Girl and Her Horse" as written by and Terrell H. Clark Carter Gravatt....
You lean forward to go
You pull back to go slow
These are the horse basics
You should know

There's no use to wait
A girl and her horse will never separate
You were done before
The gun at the starting gate

And away she rides
To the great unknown
You can wave goodbye
And spend some time on your own
And wonder why

Sometimes you find you fall far behind
On the course
Some things are best left
Between a girl and her horse

With no words to say
A girl and her horse can communicate
Cause motion is motion
And nothing's up for to debate

And away she rides
To the great beyond
You can wave goodbye
To a girl and her horse with a bond
You can't deny

Sometimes you find
You fall far behind on the course
Some things are best left
Between a girl and her horse
Sometimes you find
You can't cross the line on the course
Some things are best left
Between a girl and her horse

You lean forward to go
You pull back to go slow
The rest is anyone's guess
Don't you know

And away she rides
With the best in show
You can wave goodbye
A girl and her horse
Have a bond you'll never know
And away she rides
WIth the best in show you know
Unicorns don't exist of course
But every girl in this world has a horse

Sometimes you find
You fall far behind on the course
Some things are best left
Between a girl and her horse
Sometimes you find you can't cross
The line on the course
Some things are best left
Between a girl and her horse

    General CommentI think this song is about women who cheat:

    With no words to say
    A girl and her horse can communicate
    Cause motion's motion and nothing's up for debate

    Sounds a lot like sex to me. Especially in the context of the rest of the song. It seems like realizing that if she has guy friends that she frequently hangs around, you've already lost 'the race'. She'll continue to ride her horse and you'll get left at the starting gate.

    General CommentTo me, this song seems to be about how every girl has something about them that a boy will never be able to understand-
    "With no words to say/ A girl and her horse can communicate", "the rest is anyone's guess/ Don't ya know", "every girl in this world has a horse"- or that will always mean more to them than the boy- "A girl and her horse will never separate", "a girl and her horse with a bond you can't deny".

    I see it as a lament of sorts, that no matter how much they try, boys will never be able to reach every part of a girl's life-- they will always have that "great unknown" to escape into.

    My OpinionEvery horse girl can immediately relate to this song.
    It is very literal and means EXACTLY what it says. There is no other bond like that between a girl and her horse. Yes forward and back are the two basics that are obvious to anyone watching but it is the subtle "motion" in the hands, seat, and legs that command everything else. And if you are a boy dating a girl with a horse : You WILL be second to the horse-thats just the way it is. So expect to NEVER understand it, and to spend alone time. Just like the song says! But don't be jealous, because 'yes' you were done before the race started. You wll never have a chance to even try and beat the horse. If you were even able to catch a horse girl consider yourself lucky and hold on tight. You have someone special!!
