Ride with an idle whip

"The Conversion of Aurelian McGoggin"
Ride with an idle whip, ride with an unused heel, 
But, once in a way, there will come a day
When the colt must be taught to feel
The lash that falls, and the curb that galls, and the sting of the rowelled steel.

                                                   Lif's Handicap
