Little Cowgirls Dreams
"Little Cowgirls Dreams"
"Horse posters decorating bedroom walls"
"Dreams of galloping bareback along the beach"
"Jean pockets filled with sugar, carrots and apples"
"Bookshelves filled with horse books"
"Early morning rides, Just my horse and I"
"Cowboy hats, boots and check shirts"
When I was a child everything had to be about horses, I don't think there was a spare inch of wall in my bedroom that was not plastered with a horse picture. I dreamed everyday of owning my own horse and would take any opportunity to ride any horse made available to me. Every time I attended a fancy dress party as a child there was no question what I was attending as, yes you guessed it the cowgirl!.
When I was around 12 years old my family moved to a 10 acre property, I was finally able to own my first horse. I was so excited and could not stop looking outside my bedroom window, for fear it was all a dream. I am sure my old horse Bo was pushing 20 years of age but to me he was the most beautiful horse in the world, and we spent many good times together.
Daddy's Little Girl
Little girl sits by the gate on her big horse
she rides tall in the saddle
but her little boots don't reach her daddy's stirrups so she rides with out them
her little hands grip the reins tight
Her hat is pulled down low
and she is rarin to go
Her name is called and she takes that big ole horse
up the alley she hits the end and
starts kickin and ridin for all she's worth lays down a nice pattern
and comes out a smilin
her little hand reaches down
to pat her horses neck
Thats aboy she tells him
And daddy is standin on the fence
smilin, proud as can be
cause that's his baby girl out there
she's four feet tall and beatin em all
he says but shes still her daddy's little cowgirl
So to all those little girls out there, "Keep the Dream Alive".
Embrace the Cowgirl Spirit! Saddle up a horse and go riding!
