The obvious answer for Mr. Tip would be, "It's A Long Way To Tipperary." I sing it to him all the time (oddly, he hasn't kicked me yet. Hmm.) I'm thinking maybe "Feeling Good," by Muse, which has a nice swing to it and also describes his usual mood. Oddly, I can see him trotting out to "Pride (In the Name of Love)" by U2.
John's, without any doubt, was the theme from Phantom of the Opera. We even had a little freestyle planned out to "Masquerade" including one-tempis, his favorite thing. Every time I hear the soundtrack I think of him. Had he been gray, I would have called him Opera Ghost.

Whenever I hear the party song at the beginning of La Traviata Act I: Introduzione: Coro: 'Dell'invito trascorsa e gia l'ora?', it reminds me of my Arab gelding, Gem. It's just so cheerful and lively of a tune.
I'm pretty sure my goofy Iberian Warmblood sings to the tune "We're Off To See The Wizard" also. He definately needs courage and a brain.
My Appaloosa, well, what song talks about being opinionated, not gonna do it, good ol' boy? That's him. He's opinionated, doesn't wanna work but will eventually do what you ask and yet, he's the same, sane horse that will stand for hours to be groomed, or go on trail rides, etc.
I am going to have to go with the "I'm too sexy" one for my boy! I have only had him 3 weeks, but boy! He is such a primmadonna prissy boy...When he hears someone talking about him, especially if it's a compliment about his beautiful muscley neck, I swear he gracefully arches his neck so as to best show it off!

My horse is simple, so he just mumbles nursery rhymes....
I hate this one:
For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.
And even though he isn't a dressage horse, sometimes I catch him reciting the dressage arena letters...

As if his education somehow excuses him for being a pretty idiot. Then he tries to dump me.
I always joke about my moms reiner and sing "Were off to see the wizard!" when Im around him, cause he really needs to go get a brain and some courage.
Oh my gosh - I've been trying to come up with a song to sing riding cross country on my horse and I think this is it! He needs a brain, and I need courage I'll be singing it this Sat in our first event if all goes well! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
(I need a simple song since I can't remember much riding cross country, so maybe I need a brain too )
Dobby would sing "Mud on the Tires" but Linny was more of like the disco version of Beethoven's Fifth- a serious piece of music done in a silly way. A mare I used to ride reminded me of the music you associate with the flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz, she was nuts.

William, without a doubt, rocks out to "Bad Reputation" by Joan Jett. While his actual "theme song" might have to be "Porcelain" by Moby (from the Playing by Heart soundtrack), most of Joan Jett's stuff works for the big orange jerk.
Isaac, on the other hand, appreciates some good ambient techno or, if he's feeling really coffee-shop, emo. But, he also keeps a journal and handmakes papers, so really, what else could be expected?
