"The Riding Song"

Composed and performed by Franklin Levinson

The Riding Song is an original song I wrote back in the mid-70s. This is long before my Maui ranch. I was in college in Michigan. While I was with horses quite a bit back then, little did I know how my life with horses was going to turn out.
