Here's a poem by Susan Friend LeTourneur that is kept in her tack room:

Prepare for the Worst. Ride for the Best.
This is your life; this is not a test!
Smile often; laugh out loud.
Be Joyous and caring; of yourself be proud!
Stay positive: smile!
Think first and enjoy the miles.
Pat yourself on the back for a job well-done;
Don't dwell on the past mistakes,
and most of all: HAVE FUN!
Stretch tall, sink deep
Be bold,  Ride tough!
Keep kicking when things get rough!
Winner triumph!
Losers mope,
Dreamers are stagnant...
Never lose hope!
