Dressage

War Horse Moves = Dressage
Carol

Using the natural moves-
Of the horse-
As one views-
Then using those moves-
To train for war.

The War Horse-
Was the "Weapon" of choice-
To intimidate
Those troops on the ground-

Now those moves
Are used
As discipline
And to create awe
On the part of those who view.

An example from Denmark:

Nice poem, it's amazing how the horse moves at the direction of the rider, very precise. It reminded me of seeing Cops control us concert goers by swinging the horse's head back and forth pinning us up against a concrete wall, with the horse's head coming within about a foot of our heads. War horse indeed.
