Give Me A Beat! Horses In Our Favorite Songs

Give Me A Beat! Horses In Our Favorite Songs

There are so many songs about horses, with horses in the lyrics or about life with horses it's hard not to find a few you enjoy. We've started this list to compile our favorites and start a playlist. Here's just a few that made the cut! 

“Wild Horses” by The Rolling Stones - Wild horses will never drag us away from the barn, that's for sure! Just ask our significant others! 

“A Horse with No Name” by America and George Martin - This one always reminds me of all the OTTB horses coming off the track and transitioning into a new career. Sometimes you know their Jockey Club names, sometimes you don't, other times they are so bad you wish you didn't!  

“Buckle Up” by Crook - This song is a great reminder to always wear your helmet and/or vest when riding. Safety first!


“Wildfire” by Micheal Martin Murphey- Because we've all loved that one rogue horse who was misunderstood by all. 


Wild Horses" by Natasha Bedingfield - This title is a popular with music artists for good reason! I love how Natasha Bedingfield sings about the beauty of horses and how wild and free they are. 

“Free Fallin’” by Tom Petty - This song always reminds me of people who think horses are a phase of life for little girls. The real horse girls know it's possible to love your horses and your boyfriend too! 

“Little Red Corvette” by Prince - I always find myself craving a good gallop when I hear this song. Reminds me of the freedom we all find on the back of a horse.  

"Galloping Home" by Denis King, the South Band Orchestra - this song always makes us feel happy and excited to be going home to our horses after a long day.

“Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X, Billy Ray Cyrus - Because “YES”, the answer will never be no to this song! 


“Dark Horse” by Katy Perry - We've all been there, horses totally have ups and downs and who doesn't love to root for the underdog? 

This is a short list with some of our favorites.

There are many more good ones, on our playlist. Check out our Spotify playlist with these songs and many more HERE

Run For The Roses" by Dan Fogleberg,

Kathleen Lanodn

Run for the Roses Dan Fogleberg: Lyrics
Born in the valley and raised in the trees
Of Western Kentucky on wobbly knees
With mama beside you to help you along
You’ll soon be growin’ up strong

Oh, the long lazy mornings in pastures of green
The sun on your withers, the wind in your mane
Could never prepare you for what lies ahead
The run for the roses so red

And it’s run for the roses as fast as you can
Your fate is delivered, your moment’s at hand
It’s the chance of a lifetime in a lifetime of chance
And it’s high time you joined in the dance
It’s high time you joined in the dance

From sire to sire it’s born in the blood
The fire of a mare and the strength of a stud
It’s breeding and it’s training and it’s something unknown
That drives you and carries you home

And it’s run for the roses as fast as you can
Your fate is delivered, your moment’s at hand
It’s the chance of a lifetime in a lifetime of chance
And it’s high time you joined in the dance
It’s high time you joined in the dance

Songwriters: Dan Fogelberg
