The song begins with Musgraves singing about a person who is “high on their horse.” She describes them as being “full of themselves” and “too good for everyone else.” Musgraves then goes on to call them out for their arrogance, telling them that they need to “get off their high horse” and “come back down to earth.”

Fun Fact

The song’s title is a reference to the idiom “get off your high horse,” which means to stop being arrogant or condescending.

“High Horse” was co-written by Musgraves with songwriters Trent Dabbs and Thomas Schleiter, and was inspired by Musgraves’ love for disco and the Bee Gees. The song was not initially intended for her album “Golden Hour,” but was added as a last-minute addition after her label president heard it and suggested it would be a hit.
