Okay, there's a lot more than could be said about us hunter and jumpers in just three lines and a total of 17 syllables... 5 on the first line, 7 on the second, 5 on the third, but whatever! The endurance riders are doing it, (http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/showthread.php?p=6171353#post6171353) so why can't we? I'll start below and hopefully you'll out-do my attempts.

1) Ponies and pigtails
Horse show mom and dads abound
This is Short Stirrup

In and out, final warmup
I land without him

Okay I'll play because I'm working nightshift and feeling sorry for myself. it's not really hunter-jumper but you get the drift...

Reading COTH forums
I should be working instead

Im crying laughing at some of these, thanks guys!

Here are a few of mine :)


Dark eye and nicker
Expectant muzzle reaches
Check the left pocket


Bolt off the trailer
Gallop into the sunset
...get the grain bucket


Not looking to buy
Perfection enters the ring
Goodbye college fund


Fresh horse, rusty eq.
Dreaded words softly spoken-
"Now drop your stirrups"



That was more fun than I was expecting :D

Just a darn minute here! I'm the one who started the Endurance Haiku thread and while I don't mind your borrowing the idea (in fact I'm loving yours) I'm jealous that your gang is soooo outdoing ours in submissions. Waaaah! Anyway, great stuff...carry on.

Stuck in the indoor,
Thoroughbred just wants to run.
Spring better come soon!


Old man jumps clean, He's
so pleased he starts bucking! Get
through the timers first!


Walk down the aisle,
He hears my steps and nickers.
Life is good, just now.

An owner's life is
Filled with bills, board, and blankets
But it's still the best

O Four Year Old Horse,
Why do you test me often?
When will you be five?

Schoolmasters are a
Child's best friend and a mom's
Best insurance plan.

Spring grass grown knee deep
Golden sunshine, grazing mare,
And the Earth stands still.

Jump stride jump buck BUCK
Horse beneath no longer and
I am flying high!

Horsey in your stall
Stop banging against your wall
Dinner time is soon

Get on the trailer
Get on the trailer right now
It's the same trailer

No you can't have that
Stop doing that I said no
Will you please just stand

Please open your mouth
It's only ivermectin
You've had it before

Stop snorting at it
It's not going to hurt you
It's only a hose

Stand, Stand, Stand, Stand, Stand
Will you stop squirming and stand
So I can mount up

Trot, no not jig, trot
I know it's spring and windy
Please calm down and trot

Canter transition
No that isn't a canter
That's a faster trot

Yes I see the horse
Yes he does look very nice
No you can't visit
