Epic but after a lapse so cheers!

I've always admired horses
and I guess I most surely always will
No legend without em' complete
The unsung heroes of any heroic battle

Pony, colt, filly or mare
ride it bareback if you dare

Ride them to a trot, ride them to a canter
your beast of burden yet be fair with the horsewhip
Dön't think it cannot throw you off
just coz' your feet are secured in the stirrup

A horse is so handsome, graceful and royal
Know you've harnessed a stately, princely animal
Tis surely a conveyance both regal and loyal
Hooves and horseshoes have trodden since times immemorial.

Whether twas the magnificent Moghuls or the mighty maharajas
tis horses who added to their pomp and glamour
The knights, squires and musketeers
all needed horses too for any show of valour

I ardently admire the noble appearance
of the silky maned Arabian horse of elegance
Described as a powerful white beauty with flowing manes and tails
To me a horse with dashing, equine charisma
altogether of admirable build and countenance

On these majestic yet stalwart stallions
depended the victory feats of most battalions
No victory or history without horseback power
The horse is indeed the heroic champ of champions

As for food feed it fodder
Hallowed be the stables
for this fauna of the fables
But be not harsh with the halter

Stroke its mane or its muzzle
The rider seated in its saddle

And the rider goes a' walloping
as the gelding goes a' galloping.

Ah and there goes a jockey in his jodhpurs
racing in a livery of racing spurs

Thus a more flattering sporting exercise is the equestrian
esp if compared to the walking, jogging pedestrian

And then to have a look at horsey hues
coats in shades of mustard, magenta and maroon

Feel that velvet touch of nature's velveteen
Tis universally admired, that glossy brown sheen

The bridle and the reins haltering this regal being
seem quite ironic and unfit to me
But it is indeed quite a task to tame
that wild mustang hued in deep mahogany

Famous heroic horses that've ridden into the present
from the anals of history
and I'll mention those well-known to me
They're Al-Boraq, the Zuljanah, the wooden Trojan horse and the Xanthus
Some real remarkable horses, others more legendary
They do deserve such fabled epic and fuss

Horses are heroes no one can deny
and while horsecarts mightn't have units of horsepower
a foal shall grow into a speedy steed as time goes by
when it shall welcome on its back the rider

Hearken em' horses neigh, whinny snort or nicker
They've been mounted both by villains and hero riders

There riding on smooth sandy dunes or even coarse gorse
Clip clop go the hooves of the heroic horse.
