Horse Handlers Prayer

Dearest god in Heaven,
Give me the strength to guide my horse. Make my hands soft and my head clear. Let me horse understand me and I him. My heart you have blessed with a special love of these animals. Let me never lost sight of it. My soul you have gifted with a deep need for them, to see the sun gleam on an elegant head. Always may my throat tighten at the sound of a gentle nicker. Let the scent of fresh hay and a new bag of grain always be sweet to me. I adore the joy of a warm day on the farm. The grace and splendor of a running horse, the thunder of its hooves makes me eyes burn and my hear soar; let it always be so dearest God, grant me the patience , for horses are harnessed wind and wind can be flighty. Let me not frighten or harm them. Above all dear God, fill me life with them. When I pass from this world, send my sould to no heaven without them. For this love you have given me graces my existence and I shall cherish and praise you for it all the time.
