The Ultimate Pony Playlist: 5 Hours of Music About Horses

BY BLOG EDITOR LAUREN MAULDIN

Does your drive to the barn suffer from a lack of equestrian tunes? Do you ever workout at the gym and think, “This beat just doesn’t have enough pony in it for my liking?” Do you ache for a little bit more equestrian flair in your lyrics?

Okay truthfully I’m not sure I can honestly answer yes to any of those questions, but as a lover of music and a lover of horses I had to see just how many songs I could find about horses. The answer? A lot.

A lot a lot. Like, more songs about Wild Horses than you could ever possibly imagine. 

So I had to do the equestrian world a service that it did not ask for, and compile a list of the most essentially equestrian songs I could find. Within this list of 75, you’ll find multiple genres, musicians and eras. We didn’t save anything marked explicit, but listeners should be aware that some songs might include adult language. 

Go forth and listen in confidence that your headphones will never be without ponies again!
