The poem begins in the morning, just after the narrator has finished his chores. He saddles her and rides into the rising sun on the "West Texas trails." He describes his hat, his spurs, and his boots. As he follows railroad tracks he feels close to his roots. His horse is old, so he stops and allows her to rest and drink water by a brook. While she rests, he admires the mountain landscape and an old bridge. He ends the poem stating that the best moments are those when he is out alone with his horse riding the old, Western trails.
