Fast & Free

Karna Johnson 4-15-14

When I was little I always watched

my older sister barrel race,

I loved to see the horses

and watch them run

All of the riders looked free

they didn't care what people thought,

always making noises

to make the horses go faster,

you can feel the excitement in the air

I loved to watch the horses get ready

with paint on their backs and braided manes

seeing the wild side of the horse

before it goes into the arena

Running the clover-leaf patter as fast as it can

I knew that barrel racing

was something that I wanted to do,

to feel free on the back of a maniac.
